Hiring and facilitating hiring are a key activity for NP, since its goal is to work with a member institution for a maximum of one year as a press achieves viability outside of NP support. While we put in place a goal of 3 full-time or equivalent employees—a criteria for regular membership in the Association of University Presses—we recognize that important work is often realized with far fewer resources. NP would also anticipate implementing a vigorous paid internship program and drawing on the involvement of graduate students, particularly those interested in a career in publishing.
