AAP’s Higher Education Committee members represent the nation’s leading developers of post-secondary course materials. By partnering with faculty, administrators, policy makers and students, Higher Education publishers are able to produce solutions that lead to student success.
Their initiatives center on three targets: improving student success rates--better grades, retention and graduation; lowering the cost per pupil for instruction at colleges and universities; and lowering students’ costs for course materials.
Higher Education publishers are also pioneering the digital transformation in America’s classrooms, giving students with all types of learning styles the ability to succeed in the classroom and beyond. These offerings not only lower costs for students and schools but they enhance portability with anytime/anywhere access from laptops or web-enabled mobile devices.
By continuing to produce the finest higher education instructional materials in the world, American publishers are redefining the way 21st century learning is achieved and most efficiently preparing students for a highly-competitive global job market.
The AAP Higher Education Committee has developed a new webpage dedicated to explaining how publishers are investing in quality materials to give students more choices and help them become more successful. Visit our BACK TO CAMPUS page to learn how digital learning platforms can help students succeed academically and help reduce costs.
The Committee hosts the University Dialogue series to help educate college administrators and policymakers to better understand the role publisher materials and technologies play in reducing costs and improving student success.
