Open Education Resources Committee

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Open Educational Resources (OER) Committee is to leverage our engagement with OER at Glendale Community College. Our goals are: to encourage the awareness, adoption, adaptation, and creation of OER materials across the college; to recommend institutional policies surrounding OER procedures and responsibilities, training and professional development, licensing and formatting, and quality assurance; and to develop Z-Degree (Zero Textbook Cost Degree) Pathways for our students. 

OER success requires the inclusion of all stakeholders, including but not limited to: faculty, staff, administration, students, the Board of Trustees, and the Foundation. It is vital that members from the GCC Community: Library, Counseling, DSPS, Bookstore, ITS, Financial Aid, and ASGCC, are involved with the campus-wide mission to encourage the success of OER. 


This mission statement was informed by the College and University Open Educational Resources (OER) Policy Development Tool (2016).
