Business Professor Linda Williams has become the face of TCC’s Textbook Free Degree. She’s been featured in countless articles and television interviews about the cutting edge program that enables TCC business students to earn an entire degree while spending zero funds for textbooks.

“It is amazing to be the first accredited institution of higher learning to offer a fully OER-based degree,” said Williams. “While we see the obvious benefits for our students, we hope to inspire other faculty and institutions to replicate what we’ve accomplished.”
