Classroom technology and capacity expansion
Two general university classrooms in Cleveland Hall were recently converted into one larger auditorium accommodating 254 seat course sections. The tiered lecture halls previously accommodated about 125 students each. Demand for larger lecture spaces prompted the Provost’s classroom committee to initiate the project which included removing a temporary wall between the two adjacent rooms, updating the aging teaching equipment and installing videoconferencing capabilities.
The classroom committee recently finished another project in Bustad 145 auditorium. Power outlets were installed on the continuous tabletops of the heavily used 120 seat lecture hall.
Classroom renewal projects planned for 2020 include the renewal of general university classrooms in Wilson-Short, College and Sloan Halls. These projects are scheduled to begin after spring semester ends, May 2020.
