Rowan University Textbook Alternative Program (TAP)

The Textbook Alternative Program (TAP) partners with faculty and departments to leverage the knowledge and expertise of faculty members  seeking to reduce the cost of the course materials in their course(s). The three overarching goals for TAP are to: 1) raise awareness of the rising cost of course materials, 2) collaborate with faculty and departments to drive down the cost of course materials and 3) to provide day one access to course materials for all students.

Since 2018, Rowan University’s Affordability Task Force issued $2,000 grants to faculty members seeking to redesign their teaching materials with the use of library, free, and open resources that would lower the cost of course materials for Rowan students. See the website to view the projects from past TAP Grant Recipients.

Applications for 2022 are due Monday, March 31, 2022 at 5pm
