K-StateRebel Cummings-Saulscads@k-state.eduY-sort of each year funds have to be sought outBy Fall 2017- over 70 courses using open or alternative resourcesno

University of SaskatchewanHeather M. Rossheather.ross@usask.caY - some funding from the province that is administered through the teaching and learning centre. Some other financial support through the university's curriculum innovation fund.At least 25 courses are using open textbooks by the fall of 2017. We'll also be starting to track Z-courses this academic year.No, but a strategic plan has been created and OER has broad support by upper administration.

University of OklahomaJen Wallerjenwaller@ou.eduY - part of a larger fund used for more than OERBy Fall 2017 - 75 courses using open or alternative resources, some with multiple sections. Not all courses are taught every semester.No

California State University, NorthridgeLaurie Borchardlaurieborchard@gmail.comY - the CSU system provides funding opportunity (up to 20K per year), we also received 50k through the Textbook Affordabiity Act from the State of CAHard to say, there are faculty that I have worked with that are using OER or created their own. We are right in the middle of our large state grant, so by June 2018 we shoudl have about 70 courses. We passed a Textbook Affordable resolution through our faculty senate and have an open access publishing policy.

SUNY PlattsburghMalina Thiedemthie002@plattsburgh.eduY - New York State is allocating funds to OER adoption for the first time this year, and we are in the beginning phases of hammering out a plan for how to use the funds. Campuses receive $20k plus $8 per student in an OER course or $15 per student for courses in which all sections use OERs. Unknown so far. Our program is very much in its nascent phase.

City University of New YorkAnn Fiddlerann.fiddler@cuny.eduY-New York State funding for CUNY and SUNY. $4million dollars per system. We are organizing through a grant to colleges process. Each of CUNY schools will be participating with grants ranging from $25,000 to $350,000. Grants cover course development, faculty training, course maintenance and staffing. This is on the heels of the ATD grant under which we are converting 3 associates degree programsIn addition to the ATD degree course conversions (about 75) I can identify about 120 that I know of. Since we put a Zero textbook cost designation in place last spring. We should have a better idea as the year wears on. With this current NY State initiative it is hoped to convert 350 additional courses over the next year. No, but we hope to get something in place during this year.

steven bellbells@temple.eduY - $10K per year funded by the libraryour textbook affordability project has funded 65 projects over 7 years. Of course, there are non-funded courses using OER and we are on a continuous search for them. For example, we know of 3 gen chem faculty using the openstax book.No. An institutional textbook affordability task force has made several recommendations to increase awareness of and use of OER but i would be surprised if my institution institutes some sort of policy related to it

University of Southern MississippiJosh Cromwelljoshua.cromwell@usm.eduY - joint fund between University Libraries and the Office of the Provost, up to $10K per academic yearUnsure, as some faculty also participate in a state-level OER initiative, and I don't know the exact number of these, but my ballpark estimate is that overall the number is probably around 20. (This is only the second year of both programs.)No, but the university's Student Government Association has passed a resolution in support of OER
10
University of the PacificMichele Gibneymgibney@pacific.eduY - Office of the Provost designated funds for a pilot project this summer (2017) for faculty to develop OERs. 10 faculty proposals were selected and funded ($2,500 each). Based on results, this pilot may be continued next summer.unsure. Some of the faculty who submitted to participate were already using OER in their courses (about 5). Unknown if other faculty are using them as well.Not at this time.
11
Utah State UniversityErin Daviserin.davis@usu.eduY - $5k funded by the library and AIS and presented to one college (College of Humanities & Social Sciences) this year. CHaSS matched OER funding with $10k and funded 9 faculty grantsBy 2017, 17 courses (22 professors) are using OER or alternative resources, representing 2241 students.
12
University of WashingtonChelle Batchelorbchelle@uw.eduN - we've received OER funding from internal grant opportunities (Friends of the Librarie, Allen Grant) but there is no dedicated funding for OER18No
13
University of Tennessee ChattanoogaRachel Flemingrachel-fleming@utc.eduN - we have grant funding to advance affordable course materials through purchase of library materials and through OER development or adoption, but no committed ongoing funding.Unknown number, growing through support mentioned but also outside of library support.No
14
California State University, East BayAline Soulesaline.soules@csueastbay.eduN - we have a two-year grant (2016-2018) from the State of California through our Chancellor's Office to incent faculty to convert classes to OER. Unknown number because some faculty are engaging with OER beyond those involved with our formal program. From approx. 2011/12 through 2015/16 academic years, our formal program helped 17 faculty convert their courses (17 courses). In the 2016-2018 grant, we have, so far, incented 16 faculty to convert 43 "sections" of courses (sometimes, this represents all sections of a course; sometimes, this represents only one or some sections of a course taught by multiple faculty and not all faculty have signed on). No; however, there are state mandates embedded in law to require certain compliance. Also, our Chancellor's Office has an unwritten policy of encouraging OER and provides funds to CSUs (not just East Bay) to back that up. Also, the 2016-2018 grant application required that we pass a statement through our Academic Senate, which statement is, essentially, a form of policy.
15
Florida State UniversityDevin Soperdsoper@fsu.eduY - $5K per year funded by the LibrariesUnknown number because some faculty have adopted OER outside of our mini-grant program. We are aware of 11 instructors at our institution who are currently using OER course materials in at least one of their courses. We also recently learned that open textbooks will be used in FSU's two introductory-level chemistry courses in the 2017-18 academic year. These courses have approximately 30 sections each academic year with a total maximum enrollment of almost 4,000 students.No
