From efficient print solutions to enabling student development initiatives, Canon has a long history of supporting staff and students at one of the world’s leading universities –Aotearoa New Zealand’s, University of Otago.
Since being selected as the campus’s sole print service provider, under the All-Of-Government (AOG) contract, Canon’s partnership with the University has extended beyond print solutions – to support student leadership initiatives such as; Hands on at Otago, The Social Impact Studio and The University of Otago Student Leadership Award.
To meet the needs of 30,000 students and staff, Canon’s Education Specialists crafted a solution to cater for the campus’s diverse print requirements. Over 900 Canon devices are distributed and managed across 200 buildings and five cities throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
It’s a long history, but it’s a great history – one that we both enjoy.
Canon’s tailored print solution includes enterprise-wide print management software, uniFLOW, to manage the printing, copying, and scanning for thousands of staff and students. uniFLOW provides the university with visibility of print costs, and increases security measures by controlling device and function access with swipe, or pin code release.
What began with a print focused solution soon progressed into a partnership with one mutual focus – supporting student growth. The University of Otago’s Development and Alumni Relations Director, Shelagh Murray, emphasises supporting students has always been at the forefront of Canon’s involvement with the university.
This is demonstrated through the ongoing sponsorship and support of initiatives such as; Hands-On at Otago, internship opportunities, the Social Impact Studio and The University of Otago’s Student Leadership Award.
Social Impact Studio Manager, Sze-En Watts, describes the programme as a ‘student development and support hub’ –which offers a collection of initiatives that enable students to ‘shine in their own agency to create positive social change.’ In running the studio Sze-En also manages The University of Otago’s Student Leadership Award.
We love working with Canon…There’s a natural synergy between Canon’s underlying philosophy of Kyosei and the Social Impact Studio’s kaupapa of the leadership award.
The Student Leadership Award is an extended leadership development programme, aiming to mould socially responsible leaders through a progression pathway -structured with 170 hours of community service, planning, self-reflection and mentorship.
Canon’s ongoing sponsorship of the Student Leadership Award has enabled the university to double intake of student participants and deliver inspiring initiatives within the programme – including the annual Agency Festival which features changemaking speakers, workshops and a memorable awards ceremony to celebrate the success of our future leaders.
