Name of the campaign:
Pharos Uni-Print Solution

A brief description of the campaign:

Pharos Uni-Print Solution: University-wide student paper printing reduction software was implemented and promoted to students on all campuses that is ongoing and continually reviewed and modified to meet student needs. The software allows students to scan to email as opposed to printing on paper and forces double sided printing by default on all documents. These functions are campus-wide and have been proven to reduce paper use. http://www.pace.edu/information-technology-services/services/printing-services/student-printing

This software is just part of the University's overall paper reduction campaign. Although an unnamed campaign, it includes feeding "scrap paper" back into printers (particularly in the libraries for draft print outs and at Document Services for printing receipts), incorporating 30% PCW recycled and 100% PCW recycled paper into Document Services stock for the Pace community to use, including computer labs, faculty and staff.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

University-wide student paper printing reduction software that has saved over 750,000 sheets of paper per semester from 2009 to present Details on the implementation were featured as a national case study with HP and can accessed for reading via link below on the "Recycling and Waste Reduction" page.
