How many of the institution’s research-producing divisions are covered by a published open access policy that ensures that versions of future scholarly articles by faculty and staff are deposited in a designated open access repository? (All, Some or None):
None / Don't Know

Which of the following best describes the open access policy? (Mandatory or Voluntary):
Voluntary (strictly opt-in)

Does the institution provide financial incentives to support faculty members with article processing and other open access publication charges?:
Yes

A brief description of the open access policy, including the date adopted, any incentives or supports provided, and the repository(ies) used:

While the institution does not have an Open Access policy we do provide publishing resources to our faculty and publication access through our campus repository. Current faculty can request support for any journal that requires author payment whether this be subvention charges, page charges, or the online journal fees. The institution currently views OA fees as regressive and, in many cases a publisher profit point. We currently provided an institutional repository (ARMINDA) for faculty publications.
