About

Champions & Coordinators

In order to work with each institution in the USG more effectively, ALG has created a Campus Champions and Library Coordinators program.

Campus Champions are representatives from every USG institution, working within their campus to inform faculty, staff, and students about Affordable Learning Georgia and the benefits of open educational resources.

Library Coordinators are librarians from every USG institution, working together with a Campus Champion to identify, evaluate, and provide access to affordable, library-subscribed, and open educational resources. They also inform faculty, staff, and students about ALG and OERs alongside the Campus Champion.

Campus Champions and Library Coordinators are also part of a large ALG Champions and Coordinators team, which meets online each month.

Listed below are Campus Champions and Library Coordinators from each USG institution:
