Maricopa Community Colleges

The Maricopa County Community College District is comprised of ten colleges and serves approximately 200,000 students annually. Since 2013, the Maricopa Millions project has worked to coordinate and grow adoption and awareness of OER across the colleges by funding course development by cross-college teams of faculty and hosting student engagement events. Many of the developed courses are publicly accessible on Canvas Commons using the search tag "MMOER." Maricopa was also among the first institutions to implement a low-cost/no-cost materials filter in the course search tool, making it easy for students to identify courses that may be using OER or other low-cost options. The project initially set out to save students $5 million in course materials over five years, but the total savings over that time was more than twice the goal.
