"The State University of New York is among 11 schools or systems in the nation selected to participate in the 2017-18 OpenStax Institutional Partnership Program to encourage use of free, peer-reviewed textbooks on campus. The SUNY application, submitted by SUNY OER Services at SUNY Geneseo on behalf of the system, was among 42 applications for the program.
Geneseo spearheaded the launch of a similar program for SUNY five years ago called Open SUNY Textbooks, which has transformed into SUNY Open Educational Resources to reflect the program’s wider scope of service and its evolving self-sustaining membership model. Both programs have been supported with funding from the SUNY Office of the Provost."
