Driving Student Success

Your Role is Critical to Our Students' Academic Experience

There's a direct correlation between timely and accurate course material adoption and the mission of the university. You support student success by helping to ensure they have the tools that reinforce classroom and online instruction.

Benefits of Timely and Accurate Adoption

  • Student financial planning and learning preparedness
  • Students are more informed for comparison shopping
  • Bookstores are better prepared to serve students
    • Facilitates buyback in current semester, resulting in more used materials next semester and financial return to students
  • Enhances university opportunities to negotiate pricing

And, It's Also Critical

  • Even if faculty inform students via Blackboard or syllabus
  • Even if you recommend students comparison shop elsewhere
  • Even if there are no materials required for a course (that's an adoption, too!)
