Printing Policy Resolution

Posted on February 17th, 2010 by

On the Monday, February 15th, 2010 Full Senate meeting, Student Senate passed the following resolution regarding the new (as of 2009) printing policy in effect at Gustavus.


In response to the new printing policy that has been implemented we, the Student Senate, wish to present a resolution to make certain changes to the printing policy.  After a discussion with Gustavus Technology Services, we have decided to call for a doubling of the printing allowance by only charging for the front of duplex printing jobs, a rollover plan to assist students by letting them rollover unused balances from previous years when printing could become an issue in upper level classes, and an extension of the printing allowance to graduating students to the September following graduation so they may use campus resources, such as the Career Center.

WHEREAS, the printing policy for Gustavus Students has changed in the 2009-2010 school year in order reduce the use of valuable resources; and

WHEREAS, the implemented policy changes have saved the college a considerable amount of resources and cut overall printing down significantly by the end of the fall semester; and

WHEREAS, students feel that the printing allowance given is insubstantial and students could benefit academically from a policy that allowed greater freedom for their printing habits; now therefore be it

RESOLVED by the Gustavus Student Senate, this 15th of February, 2010, that the Gustavus Technology Services department with the approval of the President’s Cabinet modify the student printing policy to reflect the following changes:

1:  The allowance of free duplex printing on 8.5″x11″ black and white prints.

2:  A rollover of leftover printing allowance for students returning to Gustavus from one school year to the next.

3:  An extension of printing allowances for graduating students through the following month of September following so that campus resources may still be utilized.
