University Publishing recognized for management and sustainability

The WSU Office of University Publishing has received the 2009 IPMA Management Award from the In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA). University Publishing was also recognized by Unisource Worldwide Inc. for its dedication to forest sustainability and was named a “respect™” printer.
 
IPMA is a national organization for in-house publishing professionals with members from public and private universities as well as Fortune 500 companies. The Management Award recognizes an outstanding in-house publishing unit for its team effort to support services for the larger organization. The judges examine equipment inventory and acquisition, budget, productivity, employee relations, safety, new technology, and promotion.
 
University Publishing based its submission on the adoption of new technology, its recent Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certification, continued and expanded web development services, client education (including seminars on mailing and the effective use of electronic communication), advisory board activities, and safety initiatives. The Management Award is unique because it recognizes the efforts of the entire staff of University Publishing.
 
Unisource Worldwide Inc. supplies printing units with paper and equipment. Their “respect™” program recognizes printing plants that are committed to sustainability. To be recognized as a respect™ printer, the unit must have FSC certification, use renewable energy or manufacturing processes that safeguard resources, and use recycled-content paper that meets EPA guidelines.
 
“I am so pleased to see the efforts of WSU’s highly experienced publishing staff recognized in this way,” said Mary Read, director of University Publishing. For more information, visit www.publishing.wsu.edu.
