The University of Utah fosters a transformational experience for all students. We value and recognize a respect for knowledge that empowers students to become actively engaged on campus. We accomplish this through recognizing people, programs and projects committed to excellence.
Inclusive Access puts your textbooks and related study materials online, making them available anytime, anywhere, and on the first day of class. Any course is eligible for Inclusive Access and the fee is paid along with class registration, eliminating the need to search for and purchase textbooks independently.
Last semester, 2,500 students utilized Inclusive Access and each saved an average of 60 percent on their course materials. Students can conveniently view their textbooks online, track their progress from assignment to assignment and communicate with other students in their class. Professors can also communicate with students, as well as provide updates and announcements and monitor the access and progress of each student.
Join the 21 courses already using Inclusive Access by contacting Shane Girton, senior associate director of the Campus Store, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-581-8296. Informational luncheons will be held in March to orient faculty on how the program works and answer any questions you may have. If you are interested in attending, please contact Girton who will provide you with the details.
Hit the ground running on day one next semester and help your students save money through Inclusive Access.
