Summary: In 2018, the State University of New York (SUNY) Board of Trustees issued a resolution requiring all SUNY campuses to have in place an open access policy no later than March 31, 2020. In January of 2019, the Open Education and Open Scholarship Advisory Committee (OEOSAC) at Farmingdale State College (FSC) began work drafting an open access policy; in September of 2019, the draft was endorsed by FSC’s shared governance. As the project lead, I will discuss tactics that allowed the OEOSAC to achieve this successful outcome in less than a year.
