Existing and emerging financial limitations, COVID-19, and the pivot to online learning has exposed challenges many students face securing the course materials they need to succeed and thrive. Villanova faculty and academic support staff are encouraged to learn about strategies and resources available across the university to reference whenever a student discloses being in need of course materials.
Affordable Materials Project members compiled a listing of local course materials assistance programs and initiatives and hosted virtual workshops (recorded January 13, 2021 and January 21, 2021) for faculty and staff to share best practices for working with students facing challenges with securing the course materials they need.
Note: recordings of the video are only viewable by Villanova community members.
AMP is a university-wide collaboration between the bookstore, Falvey Memorial Library, CASA, VITAL, and the Office of the Provost, all working together to address one of the most pressing issues students face today.
