Document And Publication Services Department Established At Western

Vice President for Administrative Services Jackie Thompson has announced the formation of a new service department, Document and Publication Services (DPS).

Reporting to the Vice President for Administrative Services, DPS serves as a single, integrated unit, incorporating the Curriculum Publications Clearinghouse (CPC), Union Copy Center/Print Services, Stipes Copy Center/Print Services, Mailing Services and Word Processing operations. As of Feb. 1, these units no longer exist as separate entities, and the services provided by these units, as well as several services provided by University Publications within the Office of University Relations, are now provided through DPS.

Staff from DPS and University Relations are working together to meet the needs of University areas by providing high-quality, cost-effective use of campus resources and by ensuring materials produced reflect Western’s established visual identity and values, according to Thompson and Assistant Vice President for University Relations John C. Maguire.

The consolidated DPS department began operations Feb. 1, under the direction of Phyllis Plank. The mission of DPS is to streamline the publishing, printing and duplication process for the campus community by providing publication services from concept to delivery-including design, layout, editing, printing, production and distribution.

“The staff in University Publications within the Office of University Relations will continue to produce the high-quality materials in support of marketing, advancement, student recruitment, orientation and retention,” Maguire said.

Additional information detailing procedures and specific services as they relate to DPS will be distributed campuswide prior to July 1. Questions regarding specific projects can be directed to Pam Mainland at DPS in Horrabin Hall 46, telephone 298-1917,; or Tim Engel in the Office of University Relations, Sherman Hall 302, telephone 298-1993,
