Instructors have received ongoing email communications requesting book and course materials information for spring 2022 courses. As a reminder, campus policy states that departments are required to identify what books and other course materials are required (or if a course will have no required materials) for their classes by the day of registration.
Course material information is critical to provide financial transparency to our students during course registration and to help them plan ahead. It is also needed in order for the university to maintain Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEA) and Americans with Disability Act (ADA) compliance (Disability Services needs sufficient lead time to gain access to and prepare books and materials in suitable alternative formats for students who need them).
Instructors who are not requiring specific books or course materials for a course (and departments with unassigned courses that won’t have required materials) or courses that will utilize Open Education Resources (OER), still need to notify the CU Book Store of that fact as soon as possible.
The book store has designated a staff member to facilitate any faculty needs around this. His name is Ryan Windle, and his contact information is:
Thank you for your prompt attention to this faculty responsibility.
