University Business magazine recently honored Boise State University (ID) for implementing an innovative solution to students’ printing troubles.

Despite ample technology resources on campus, students were still waiting in line to use printers. The university’s Office of Information Technology set out to change that by moving printers closer to classrooms and changing the size of the printer to meet demand usage. Boise State says their efforts have decreased wait time and increased usage by five percent.

The award is part of the publication’s “Models of Efficiency” program, which recognizes work by colleges and universities to enact “effective and successful solutions” on campus.
