Faculty-led OER course initiatives have met great success across the State University of New York (SUNY) system. These initiatives are forming the background of institutional OER programs across our community colleges, liberal arts and technical colleges, and research universities. SUNY has recognized the need for system-wide structures to span the gaps and partner individual campuses and faculty with just-in-time support needs. In this panel, faculty members from four SUNY colleges will demonstrate the value of faculty leadership as local programs take shape and grow. They will also speak to the importance of having a system institution like SUNY OER Services who can respond to their needs and see across campuses to share resources and best practices. Finally, this panel will address the importance of well-timed financial support from government initiatives, and how that can be most meaningfully applied to spur adoption and student success. The New York State Excelsior Scholarship budget funding of $4 million dollars to SUNY OER has greatly impacted our program growth, and is making the OER conversation mainstream across our state.

My current professional focus is on accessibility, access, and inclusion in educational content.My background is in OER advocacy and program leadership, and teaching English composition and literature at the community college level. I love course design and online instruction.
