Policy #:


Authorized by:

Associate Dean for Academic Affairs - 10/13/93

Approved by:

Dean of the University - 10/13/93

In order to avoid conflicts in the scheduling of rooms for classes, seminars, workshops, etc., the following set of guidelines are to be followed:

1. The Director of Facilities Planning is the central and final source for the scheduling of any room on campus for any activity.

2. The graduate and undergraduate programs generally schedule room utilization at different times with the undergraduate program generally prior to, and the graduate program after, 4:30 p.m. (although exceptions do exist). Here the term "graduate" indicates those courses (graduate, continuing education, ETV, academic center, etc.) which fall under the supervision of the Office of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education.

3. Using 4:30 p.m. as a convenient transition point, the use of rooms before 4:30 p.m. is primarily scheduled by the under-graduate program and the four Academic Divisions will have priority use of the rooms according to the schedule below.

4. After 4:30 p.m. the rooms are identified as being either primarily for undergraduate use or primarily for graduate use. In the event that additional rooms are needed by one of the programs, these rooms will be secured with the full knowledge and consent of the other program to avoid conflicts.
