While the name and curriculum of the school have changed through the years, the primary focus has not: Bemidji State University serves the people of its region. From its inception, BSU's first responsibility has been to provide quality educational opportunities to the citizens of northern Minnesota. Still, over the decades Bemidji State University has attracted more and more students from throughout the state, the region, the country, and other nations. Welcoming the current challenge of global education, the University encourages international students to study and live at BSU, and is increasing student opportunities to study and live abroad. Expansion of its online course offerings has also enabled BSU to serve more students living outside the area.
Bemidji State University computer facilities include computer laboratories with more than 900 computer stations for student, faculty and staff use. All classrooms, residence hall rooms, labs and offices are connected to the campus computer network at speeds of up to 100 Mbps. On-line catalog and database search services are available through the A.C. Clark Library PALS system.
State-of-the-art technologies are also used in the following applications: the University's Interactive Television system (ITV), which offers distance delivery of BSU courses at off-campus sites; online courses; and course registration utilizing the Web. A Center for Research and Innovation links education and business endeavors and promotes entrepreneurship and economic development.
