According to the NSHE Board of Regents' Code Title 4, Chapter 14, Section 29, "each NSHE institution shall develop an approved statement of professional and ethical guidelines relative to the selection of textbooks or other instructional materials. Such guidelines shall address relationships with publishers or other providers, selection of one's authored text for instructional use, and shall address the desirability of minimizing costs to students when this can be accomplished without compromising academic standards and academic freedom."
The selection and production of educational materials by academic faculty is essential to providing quality instruction. Therefore, the decision on the use of such materials properly, and correctly, rests with individual faculty members and / or faculty units, consistent with policies of the department, division and college.
