Result Implemented
Whereas Tuition has recently been increased to cover costs of courses and increasing salaries, and many students are living on an extremely limited budget; and
Whereas Many departments and professors of these departments require students to purchase a packet of copied materials either from a textbook, or as a study guides or work sheets; and
Whereas These copied packets can end up costing the students a significant amount of money when they are purchased at Bird's copies or another private print shop; and
Whereas These packets could be produced much more cheaply by the University Departments.
Be It Further Resolved That All packets required by professors and departments be available to students free of additional charge; and
Be It Further Resolved That This process be implemented through WebCT, or a similar system such as Blackboard.
