The Affordable Learning Summit is an annual gathering that allows librarians, faculty, and other partners in higher education to collaborate on building a network dedicated to making higher education more accessible and affordable. The theme for this year’s Summit will be Infrastructures for Affordability.

The ALPA Summit is a part of the Affordable Learning PA program, administered by PALCI and coordinated by a Steering Committee including representatives from Temple University, Penn State University, Kutztown University, Pennsylvania Highlands Community College, Bucknell University, the Commonwealth Libraries of Pennsylvania, and PALCI staff.

The long-term goal of the project is to support a robust OER community among our campuses for the active creation and use of open textbooks and related educational resources. Affordable Learning PA is a grant-funded project made possible in part of Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, Department of Education, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.
