Glenda Thornton



Affordability Team founded by Glenda Thornton, Michael Schwartz Library Director (Retired)


Cleveland State University has been a leader in textbook affordability efforts in Ohio since 2014, when we became one of the founding members of the Open Textbook Network, which now has over 1000 campus members around the world. Our former Library Director, Glenda Thornton, was instrumental in initiating OhioLINK’s current Ohio Affordable Learning initiative, which has been actively supporting a $1.5 million Ohio Department of Higher Education grant awarded to a collection of universities and colleges across Ohio. Several CSU faculty have also been team members for these grant projects.
