V611.09 Selection of Textbooks and Other Curricular Materials

  • An instructor may not receive financial compensation or any other form of remuneration, excluding supporting educational materials for teaching, from a publisher or an agent of the publisher for the purpose of selecting or assigning textbooks or other curricular materials.
  • Instructors who have published a textbook or other curricular materials and require students to purchase them for use in their courses, must first receive approval from their Division chairs stating that the materials are appropriate for the intended course/s, with final approval residing with the VPAA.
  • Departments which prepare laboratory manuals or coursepacks for sale to their students should arrange for them to be printed and sold through the VCSU Bookstore.
  • An employee who feels this policy has been unfairly applied to him/her can use the normal University grievance process.
