UND Student Body President Brandon Beyer (left) and UND Dean of Libraries and Information Resources Stephanie Walker are big proponent of Open Educational Resources, which already have saved UND students millions in text book cots. In September, the UND Student Senate passed a resolution in support of OER at UND. On Jan. 15, it put its money where its mouth was and unanimously passed a bill to allocate $75,000 dollars to the implementation of more OER on campus. That allocation was coupled with a $25,000 match from Provost DiLorenzo. Photo by Jackie Lorentz.
