If there is any commonly shared student experience, watching the cost of our education quickly add up is certainly one. The cost of textbooks and readers is not as large as tuition, but saving on course materials may be the easiest way to trim costs. There are some small steps that faculty can take that would really help, and the pledge is a mechanism to encourage these behaviors. Here’s a copy of the current draft.
Talk to your professors about the pledge! Ask them to sign on.
Feel free to email email@example.com with comments or suggestions regarding the pledge.
