FAYETTEVILLE â€” Sixteen jobs will be cut in two years after the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville phases out a printing unit, school officials said.
Offset printing will stop on July 1, 2016, in the university's Print-Mail-Copy Solutions business unit, which provides graphic design services, on-campus mail delivery and a full-service post office. Offset printing involves transferring ink from a plate to a rubber cylinder and then onto paper.
The planned cuts are about 40 percent of the business unit, which has 39 jobs, according to reports.
