The Copy & Print Center provides a variety of services to faculty, staff, students, departments and student organizations. We have a full service copy and print operation with three high-speed digital printers/copiers with in-line saddle stitch capabilities for volume black and white and color reproduction. To compliment this array of equipment we also have two binding systems and two wide format printers capable of printing large posters and banners.
