Welcome to the Wendy Riggs Conference Room

You'll have to go to Texas to use it though.....

Welcome to the Wendy Riggs Conference Room

Rice University’s OpenStax is honoring our own Wendy Riggs for her work promoting free textbooks by naming one of their conference rooms after her!

Wendy has been a tireless advocate for utilizing free textbooks to increase access and ultimately the success rates (completion, retention, grades, etc.) of her students. She regularly speaks at conferences about her positive experiences using one of OpenStax’s free textbooks, which has encouraged other faculty to also adopt. Currently, OpenStax has over 1,500 schools utilizing our free textbooks, and have saved students over $53 million dollars, and Wendy has been a part of making that a reality.

Wendy is a wonderful example of how support for open educational resources can truly impact a college’s students and we’re very honored to partner with her on these efforts.
