Classroom Utilization

Reports to:

Provost

Charge:

The Advisory Committee   performs the following:

  • Develop and recommend for review its operating policies and procedures.
  • Recommend the establishment and revision of policies and procedures related to classroom utilization and course scheduling
  • Review and recommend to the Provost regarding proposals to:
    • Change the purpose of a classroom, either to make the space something other than a classroom or to significantly alter the nature,   function, or instructional classification of the classroom
    • Significantly change the seating capacity of a classroom
    • Designate a classroom as “dedicated” for scheduling
    • Designate a classroom as “first priority” for scheduling
    • Schedule classes in time/day patterns that are non-standard
  • Review issues related to the quality of instructional space, particularly those that affect the utilization of classrooms and recommend actions for improvement.
  • Encourage innovation in course scheduling and the utilization of available space.

 

Caveat:   The committee will NOT review or arbitrate disagreements about scheduling of individual classes and will not serve as an avenue for appealing administrative decisions.

Meetings and Re porting

The Advisory Committee will meet at least six (6) times during the academic year and other times as needed.   It will provide an annual report of activities and recommendations at the conclusion of each fiscal year and will present the report to the Academic Council early in the Fall Semester.
