The Humboldt State University (HSU) Library and HSU Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) collaborated with the campus’ own Accessibility Resource Center, Student Disability Resources Center, and Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion through five training sessions, to facilitate the integration of open educational resources (OER) into the classroom. Faculty and students, from disparate disciplines, participated as equal stakeholders in the discovery and implementation of OER into a course, throughout a year-long immersive program.

This summary covers the history of the California State University (CSU) Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$) OER program at Humboldt State University; the structure of the 2019-2020 implementation of the program; and the results and conclusion to gauge the efficacy of our collective goal to reduce the material costs for students and expand open, equitable, and accessible practices into the classroom. This summary will specifically address the process of integrating inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility into OER adoption and curriculum design, for the purpose of advancing student success. The trainings for the CSU/AL$/OER program are publicly available through our OER Canvas Commons course and our collected OER resources, organized by discipline, are available through our OER Research Guide
