Last year Davenport University came to us with a problem — high textbook costs. Davenport had made the transition to an online bookstore for its 12 campuses in 2010, but the growth of online buying options was putting continual pressure on the school to find a better way to lower the cost of textbooks and course materials in order to satisfy their students.
This Webinar will be extremely informative for schools looking to reduce textbook prices and increase student satisfaction.
We are pleased to announce that our college President, Provost, and CAO survey on textbook trends is now complete!
Last week the team at Akademos received a visit from some of Connecticut's government officials as they toured the state visiting education organizations and growing businesses. Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman, State Senator Bob Duff, and State Representatives Bruce Morris and Chris Perone all stopped by Akademos' corporate headquarters in Norwalk, CT to talk about textbook affordability and overall college affordability.
Akademos board director Eric Fingerhut was just named the President of Jewish student organization Hillel. Congratulations to Eric and we support him in his endeavors to continue supporting student learning.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) today released its report on the implementation of the Textbook Affordability Provision of the Higher Education Opportunity Act. The report was released on-time (early, even) and comes two years after the provision was passed.
