Although many colleges and universities are developing institutional strategies to circumvent the high cost of textbooks, those colleges and university who are members of a university system must be mindful of the perspectives of their Chief Academic Officers before seeking approval for their new program proposal. This chapter reviews these perspectives as revealed in their responses to a survey sent to NASH (National Association of System Heads) members. NASH members were asked to respond to six questions which covered policy topics related to inclusive access and open educational resources. Their thoughts, ideas, and concerns are discussed.
