Projects

Inclusive Access

 

 

Inclusive access (Inclusive Corseware on Pilot) is university bookstores negotiating directly with Textbook Publishers that results in student savings of 50% to 70% off of the list price. This will be added as a student fee through the Bursar's Office. Wright State will be piloting 7 courses in the Spring semester of 2018 that results in savings of nearly $60,000.
