INTEGRAL GmbH is Founding Donor of Art Diamond/Cal Poly GrCI Endowment
INTEGRAL GmbH, a major international producer of toner products, is the founding donor for the Art Diamond/Cal Poly GrCI Endowment fund. INTEGRAL GmBH donated $5,000 to initiate the new endowment, named after graphic communication industry titan Art Diamond.
The Art Diamond/Cal Poly GrCI Endowment will support research, education and training in toner, inkjet, photoreceptor and related imaging technologies. The fund will work to:
- Establish one or more annual scholarships for a Cal Poly Graphic Communication Department junior or senior showing promise for a successful career in science, technology, engineering, math and/or liberal arts (STEM-LA) related to toners, photoreceptors or inkjet;
- Build, index and maintain a searchable database at Cal Poly comprised of technical and industry publications, journals, periodicals and reports for general research and studies of digital imaging methods and materials;
- Support the ongoing presentation of Cal Poly Graphic Communication Institute (GrCI) seminars, workshops and conferences on topics related to toners, photoreceptors and inkjet industries; and
- Enable GrCI efforts in ongoing research, testing, product evaluations and related services in the areas of toners, photoreceptors and inkjet.
“This gift is a true testament to the legacy of Mr. Diamond,” said Ken Macro, Graphic Communication Department chair. “We are elated that INTEGRAL has honored him and his vision for the industry through this donation.”
INTEGRAL GmbH’s gift will go toward the initial amount needed to establish the endowment. The endowment’s ultimate goal is to reach $1 million.
