Clackamas Community College (CCC) is a student-centered organization dedicated to providing equitable, innovative, and responsive education to the community it serves. In service of this mission, CCC has developed a Textbook Affordability Plan.
Textbook affordability offers opportunities to fulfill our College mission. In 2019, Oregon passed Oregon House Bill 2213, which lays out requirements for this plan. A Textbook Affordability Workgroup was formed to develop the plan, which was completed in June 2021. If you are interested in joining the workgroup to further develop this plan or work on other TA initiatives at CCC, please contact the library: firstname.lastname@example.org.
