Professor Pat Klarecki Speaks at Printing Conference

This past April, Graphic Media Management Professor Patrick Klarecki was asked to speak at the 2013 International Conference on Advanced Media Technologies and Education in China. His presentation was titled "Sustainable Printing: Lessons Learned in North America.” It focused on educating professionals and students in the printing industry about actions printing companies in the United States take to improve sustainability in printing, such as conserving electricity and reducing air and water pollutants.

China has recently made the printing industry a priority and wants those who are interested in this field to excel in their education. As a result, Shangai Printing and Publishing College will be partnering with Ferris State in the future so that printing students from China are able to complete a Bachelor’s degree at Ferris in Graphic Media Management.

While there, Professor Klarecki was also elected to the State General Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film, and Television of China, International Scientific Committee. Congratulations Professor Klarecki on your accomplishments!
