REDUCE PRINTING COSTS


 

THE IDEA

Students wanted to see a reduction in the cost of printing on campus.

 

ACTION

  • The Education Officer and Student Voice Team to meet with IT to discuss the feasibility of this.
  • The Education Officer and Student Voice Team to write a paper to start a discussion with the university on the institution-wide paperless assignments and proposals for ideas to reduce the cost of printing.

 

UPDATE

SEPTEMBER 11TH

  • The Education Officer and Student Voice Team met with IT to discuss the feasibility of reducing printing costs. The decision was made for the Education Officer and Student Voice Team to write a paper on the matter that would go to the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Committee (LTEC). 

 

NOVEMBER 21ST

  • The Education Officer, the SU President and the CEO of the SU attended the Learning and Teaching Enhancement Committee (LTEC). The Education Officer presented the paper on printing costs. The Education Officer confirmed that the committee gave it a positive reaction. Within the paper were various ways to reduce printing costs from overall free printing to cheaper printing, to printing deals (to get free pages), to free dissertation printing, and it also pushed the agenda of paperless assignments which the University is already working on. The Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Student Experience will be looking into the paper and report back at the next LTEC meeting in February.

 

DECEMBER 6TH

  • The concerns about the cost of printing were raised again during Change Week 2019/20, and this theme was chosen for a team of student volunteers to work on.
