Stetson University holds as part of its core values a commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability, including the responsible use and conservation of our limited natural resources.
It is no surprise that there is an ever-increasing stress being placed on natural resources like paper. By raising awareness of our individual responsibility and collective impact, we seek to effect a positive change by adjusting our overall printing habits and significantly reducing the more than 3 million sheets of paper used each year.
The university fully intends to continue to offer printing as a free service, but as part of a responsible process aligned to our core values. Each student’s account will be credited with 400 prints at the beginning of each semester. This credit will not carry over to subsequent semesters, but will allow students to continue to take advantage of free printing services offered by the university.
Even a few small adjustments can result in very positive change. These can include, but are not limited to, printing multiple PowerPoint slides on a single sheet, printing your article to a PDF and reviewing it electronically, and taking care not to print blank sheets within or at the end of a printout.
