  3. Develop a publishing infrastructure and systems to support the creation and adaptation of open educational resources
  4. Provide tools, technologies, training, and support for faculty to embrace open pedagogies
  5. Establish targeted open education initiatives to attract working adults seeking to pursue postsecondary study and provide program completion encouragement and alternatives for mature learners
  6. Articulate OERu courses and offer an exit credential to the OERu network
  7. Develop an institutional open education policy

“If emerging Open Educational Practices are to flourish at our university, support for OEP must integrate with and contribute to our broader efforts to clarify and enhance our strategic position.” (Carey, Davis, Ferreras, & Porter, 2015, p. 162)
