In alignment with the School’s equity and inclusion goals, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI) will pilot a book lending program in Fall 2022 that provides free textbooks to MSW students.
Research shows that finances is a major barrier for college students and specifically for students who hold marginalized identities. By supporting students with free textbooks, the ODEI hopes to help address this barrier and ultimately improve retention. This pilot program is opened to all MSW students wishing to obtain textbooks at SSW.
Registration for the Book Lending Program for the Fall semester will begin on August 8, 2022. To learn more about the Book Lending Initiative and how to register, please click here
