About PA GOAL
This time-limited project is now complete with the end of its grant-funded phase.
The purpose of the PA GOAL program is to award a series of grants to encourage and support faculty and academic staff in creating, adapting, and adopting Open Educational Resources (OER) and other zero-cost materials for classroom use in Pennsylvania institutions of postsecondary and higher education. Funded by the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund (GEER) and administered by Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc. (PALCI), the program aims to support a wide range of open and zero-cost initiatives at a diverse range of institutions across Pennsylvania.
The program will create a more equitable ecosystem for virtual learners by expanding access for both traditional students and non-traditional adult learners from all age groups, ethnicities, and backgrounds in post-secondary and higher education institutions across Pennsylvania.
