Student Printing Service Project Update
The Student Printing Service Project is currently underway and committed to delivering a consistent and equitable printing experience for Cornell students. Upcoming initiatives will roll out new features and components of the service over time, aimed at striking the right balance of cost, ease of use, and environmental sustainability while streamlining support and infrastructure.
The project's primary goal is maintaining a tight focus on printing for students, offering a free printing allocation, plus uniform and reduced printing rates. The new service model places a priority on using vendor-supported and -provided software. Negotiations and contracts have been finalized with a select vendor. There will be standardization of the applications and printers used, all while implementing a solution that is sustainable and environmentally conscientious. The Student Printing Service Project team continues to provide updates on the project to campus stakeholders, including meetings with a pilot group of departments that will be part of the initial rollout.
Recently, the project team completed a campus-wide printer inventory, gathered networking details for printer installations, and made updates to the project's estimated timeline. Following the signing of contracts, the team will kick off vendor and pilot group activities, including collaboration with the vendor’s PaperCut engineers on a scoping and design session for a new system prototype. Throughout the implementation process, Cornell Information Technologies will continue to share more information with key stakeholders, including the Student Assembly, IT Service Group Directors, and College Business Officers.
