Be A HERO Campaign at Fresno State
If you are using OERs and/or low-cost materials in your courses to save our students money, we’d love to recognize your efforts.
For additional information, please contact Bryan Berrett in the Center for Faculty Excellence (firstname.lastname@example.org, 278-6892).
Part of the Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$) Program. "Be A Hero" enables faculty to choose and provide quality educational content that is more affordable for our students.The mission of the campaign is to make higher education more accessible to students by promoting the use of high-quality, free (OER) and low-costing learning materials.
Every dollar counts for many students. If students cannot afford the assigned class materials, they may try to learn without them.
This means that students are not only choosing not to purchase the materials they are assigned by their professor, but they are knowingly accepting the risk of a lower grade to avoid paying for the textbook.
