University of Arkansas Plans to Phase Out Offset Printing Unit; Can't Compete with Outside VendorsJuly 24, 2014
FAYETTEVILLE, AR—July 24, 2014—The University of Arkansas, located here, is planning to phase out its offset printing unit on July 1, 2016. As a result, 16 jobs will be cut in two years, reported The Washington Times.
David Martinson, the University of Arkansas' associate vice chancellor for business affairs, said that the university's offset printing service has struggled to compete with some of the larger printing firms.
By ending its offset printing services, the university said it will be saving the college several hundred thousand dollars per year, The Washington Times reported.
The university will use in-house services and outsource printed work to other vendors.
