Open Texts for Rural Arizona

Open Textbooks for Rural AZ

The Open Textbooks for Rural Arizona initiative is a grant project funded by the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE) through the U.S. Department of Education. Led by Yavapai College, a consortium of eight Arizona rural community colleges, was formed to increase student cost savings through access to Open Educational Resources (OER).

The initiative already has a series of open texts being used by Arizona Community College faculty, many of which are in courses that meet the AGEC standards.

Texts are available online via the OER Commons here (link opens in a new window).
