The college bookstore services landscape has been radically transformed over the last few years as students, faculty and administrators are increasingly concerned about the escalating costs of textbooks. Colleges are
now searching for new solutions to lower costs and support their core mission of educating students.

Three years ago Akademos completed the first comprehensive survey of college CFOs regarding the future of bookstore services and has just completed an exciting follow-up study addressing critical issues, including: 

    • Trends in campus bookstore textbook sales
    • The number of students not purchasing required materials and why
    • The impact of textbook costs on student success, persistence and retention
    • The percentage of students leaving their school-sanctioned bookstore and why
    • How bookstore services need to change to meet the demands for new learning materials and models

John Squires, CEO of Akademos will lead the discussion along with Robert Pignatello, SVP Finance and Administration at CUNY’s John Jay College who will provide insightful commentary on the key findings.
