UMass Dartmouth scientists successfully implemented a strategy to protect the dwindling yellowtail flounder population without burdening the scallopers.
Scallops, one of the best-managed fisheries in the U.S., produce about $400 million per year at dock-side prices along the East Coast, including $200 million in New Bedford.

This created an economic hardship for hundreds of families. More
UMass Dartmouth faculty and the Campus Store have been working together to reduce the costs of textbook and other class materials. The Campus Store has successfully implemented a new system designed to make the costs of materials transparent to faculty and students so they can make better choices and lessen the cost to students. A book rental program, e-textbooks, and un-bundling of course materials are all strategies implemented by the Campus Store in collaboration with faculty. Meanwhile, Charlton College of Business Professor D. Steven White was featured this week in a national press conference focusing on the impact of a new federal law designed to lower costs. Our campus store implemented the law three months prior to the July 1 deadline.
