The Faculty of Education has aligned with Xerox Global Services (XGS) in support of UBC’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) and Sustainability Academic Strategy (SAS). The goal is create a sustainable, easier, and less expensive way to produce documents in the Faculty. Please take the time to visit the Xerox website.

Faculty and staff may request print orders or graphic design services via Xerox’s web-to-print portal.

Printing, Photocopying & Copyright Approval

UBC has decided not to sign a license with Access Copyright. UBC will be under greater scrutiny from Access Copyright and copyright owners generally and it is critical that UBC faculty members, staff and students continue to be aware of, and comply with, UBC’s Copyright Guidelines and applicable copyright laws.

We encourage all faculty members and staff to visit the Copyright website to become familiar with Canada’s copyright requirements and their obligations as users of copyrighted materials.
