UVic Student Society campaign for open textbooks

UVic Undergraduate Society (UVSS)

The UVSS has launched a #TextbookBroke campaign that aims to “bring awareness to the problems in the publishing business, where students are captive consumers and there is little correlation between product value and price. In addition, the UVSS is advocating to professors, administration, and government to explore the many opportunities to make education more affordable without sacrificing the quality of the learning experience.” The texbookbroke campaign was highlighted on  CBC News on September 7, 2016.Listen to the interview on All Points West on September 6, 2016 (podcast)
