Launched in 2021, Fund to Mission--the University of Michigan Press's open access monograph model--aims to support teaching and learning. Join us next Thursday, April 14th, from 1:00 - 2:00 pm ET to learn more about how open access U-M Press content--made possible by Fund to Mission--is aiding in libraries' efforts to expand affordable learning initiatives. Attendees will hear from a UMP author and staff on how they are using both OA content and the Fulcrum platform in their classrooms. Folks will also learn more about the model and progress, as well investment options.

Fund to Mission is an inclusive, values-based model that seeks to encourage and enable participation for all institutions regardless of their size. We want to ensure that everyone has a chance to be a part of building an open future.

The recording and presentation slides will be circulated after the webinar.
