In addition, our Emerson Print and Copy Center, which prints for students, staff and faculty, prints on FSC Mix at minimum. The 20#bond for their black and white copier (which is most student work) is a 50% post-consumer waste/multipurpose recycled paper. The Print and Copy center is unable to share spending on paper, as they are vendor (Collegiate Press).
