Administrative History

Publications and Printing, now known as Pub & Print, first opened in 1965. Called Central Duplicating, it operated out of a second floor office in the old Administration building (later demolished). Faculty and staff produced their own copies on memo machines.

Having only three student assistants that ran the shop, Dr. Tracy Stallings made the decision to hire a manager in 1968 and hired Jimmy Drew who would become Pub & Print's first full-time employee (Drew retired in 1998). During this period, the operation expanded and in the late 1960s the office moved into the ground floor of the Martha Munro building. Several years later, Central Duplicating (together with Public Relations, now known as University Communications & Marketing) moved into the bottom floor of the Old Auditorium, which was formerly occupied by the Bookstore.

In the 1970s, a previously-used metal building was acquired and set it up in the current location of Pub & Print (east of the Humanities Building and south of Bowdon Hall). The Pub & Print office shared this building with ITS until the latter moved into Cobb Hall. By 2013, the print shop had begun to outgrow its space and the decision was made to expand and renovate the building to its current state (9,300 square feet and faced with brick and a glass-front lobby).

Pub & Print first operated under the direction of Alumni Services. Later, it was transferred administratively to the Office of University Advancement. In 2010, Pub & Print was transferred to the responsibility of the Vice President for Business and Finance with the print operation reporting to Auxiliary Enterprises. At this time, Pub & Print was given permission to market their services. As of 2019, Pub & Print offers the publication and printing of books, posters, wall art, bumper stickers, and more.
