Provost Lori S. Gonzalez has announced the closing of Printing and Publications effective June 30.
Mountaineer Printing, a service offered within the College of Fine and Applied Arts and Department of Technology and Environmental Design, will provide a seamless continuation of service to the university community.
Mountaineer Printing is located in Katherine Harper Hall. Please visit us at mountaineerprinting.appstate.edu.
“First of all, we thank the employees of Printing and Publications for their service to the university,” said Dr. Glenda Treadaway, dean of the College of Fine and Applied Arts. “Secondly, we thank all the loyal customers of Printing and Publications over the many decades it has been in existence. We are excited to announce that all those customers in the campus community will not be left without an alternative.”
Mountaineer Printing is a part of the Graphic Imaging and Technology Program (GAIT) and will be overseen by GAIT program coordinator and Reese Distinguished Professor George Glisan.
“Students will gain experience and hands-on education in a true learning lab while providing service to the university community. Giving students the real-world experience of interacting with clients and working with equipment and situations found in industry is a hallmark of the College of Fine and Applied Arts, and this new endeavor will further that aspect of our mission,” according to Treadaway.
Mountaineer Printing will have the benefit of the many resources available in its labs with students and faculty and will also be receiving much of the printing and finishing equipment currently housed in Printing and Publications. Two full-time staff members will be hired to assist with customer service and production. “We will ensure a smooth, seamless transition of service to the campus community,” Glisan said.
