Why Use Pay-For-Print?
In the past, Virginia Western had public printers in the library, labs, and learning centers for student use. These printers generated an estimated 4.2 million printed pages annually, which cost the college approximately $26,000. Based on this information, the Sustainability Committee, which consists of faculty, staff, and administrators, recommended that the college explore options that would encourage print conservation. A pay-for-print system has been identified as the best, most cost-effective option that has already been implemented successfully at other colleges and universities across the country.
