Abstract

Costs of textbook is an enormous challenge for students trying to get an education. TRUSU student reps met with the library about costs of textbooks to see how we could partner to help with this growing problem. We worked together to create a funding proposal that was also aided by University bookstore data and support. We met at various times over the course of a year including a proposal writing session during Long Night Against Procrastination held at TRU Library. We will talk briefly about how we worked through the partnership and have time to do an exercise in thinking about projects we would like to tackle and brainstorm ideas about finding partnerships that can help participants.
