Open Educational Resources

​Providence College has joined with other institutions of higher education in Rhode Island as partners in the Open Textbook Initiative, which seeks to reduce the costs of textbooks by working with higher education institutions to identify appropriate openly licensed textbooks and other materials for integration into coursework.

Mini-grants are provided to support faculty in the creation or compilation of open educational resources (OERs) to use in their courses, resulting in minimal cost to students for course materials. For more information about OERs: For OER mini-grant criteria and application guidelines, contact​.​
