Molloy College has just added its first PhD program and there are 2 other doctorates in the works. We are also bulking up research requirement for faculty. So I’m looking for insight, advice and any specific technology needs to support a research program…. Would like to be proactive and consolidate efforts as possible. Any thoughts?

John,

Kyle is right that people get unreasonably upset over this topic, but still with proper championing it can be done. I haven't hit this one at my current institution yet (bigger fish to fry in my first year and a half) but I've been hinting around and looking for support both from Finance and from the student "green" organization. I was at Williams a few years ago and a pretty good job was done there. Here's a link to the policy:
http://oit.williams.edu/policies/printer-allocation/

One thing that helps a lot is getting a print queue monitoring system in place, like Pcounter, or Pharos, etc. that gives you a good picture of how much printing is going on. Those numbers tend to get people's attention! Also documentation of the fact that the bigger the printer the less the cost per page.

Good luck,

 - Mark

------------------------
We are looking into saving funds by cutting down on the number of printers on campus.  We have a lot of people running ink-jet printers and/or small laser printers in their offices.  We feel we can save a lot of money by having a central printer or copier that can print for everyone in the department to use and decrease the number of small printers.

I am interested in seeing policy statements on who qualifies to have a printer in their office instead of having to use a central printer within the department.  I am sure we will get push-back from those who claim confidentiality, wasted time walking to the printer, etc.   So, do you have a policy that states certain ranks of faculty and/or administration may have an office printer and everyone else have to walk a few feet?

If you would be kind enough to share your policies and/or thoughts, it will be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone have any procedures, forms, etc. for doing a study to see where printers are needed?

Also, has anyone done any research on the cost of printing on various models of HP printers?  We charge 3 cents per page to print on copiers.  It would be great to be able to look on a chart and tell Prof. Jones it is costing him X cents per page and he could save Y cents per page if he would print on the copier.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

John

It is hard to believe it is almost time to send out the Center for Higher Education CIO Studies (CHECS) CIO and technology leader surveys again. One of the most difficult parts about this work is keeping up with people as they move.

So - if you are a higher education CIO or tech leader (a position in the next org layer down from the CIO) and you have changed jobs in the past year please send me your email address and I'll be sure to update your information. If you have recently moved into one of these positions for the first time please send me your email address and I'll add you to the list.

Finally, if you are looking for a gift for that special tech leader or CIO in your life...the 2013 reports are available at www.checs.org.  The descriptions of the reports are on the website. In general, I would say if you are a CIO get the CIO report.  If you want to become a CIO, get the tech leader report. Proceeds from the reports fund the research and two endowed scholarships at Nova Southeastern University and UT Austin.

Thank you for all of your help and Happy Holidays!

Wayne
