Just over a year into Joanne Li being named Chancellor of the University of Nebraska at Omaha, UNO is upping its push of a University wide operation aimed at saving students millions of dollars.

According to the university, books obtained on-line in the “Open Nebraska” program saved students $6 million in 2021 and starting this fall students at UNO are able to use the no-or-low-cost digital course materials as well.



At the same time, Chancellor Li continues her statewide sales pitch that UNO is part of a larger picture, an “urban university” that is fully committed to bringing highly educated students into the Omaha workplace, through programs that are affordable and accessible.
