Classroom and Office Space for the 2006-07 Academic Year
President Nelson has asked the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Academic Deans, working with the Department Chairs and the Registrar to prepare a class schedule for the 2006-2007 academic year.  The intent is to minimize the number of classrooms needed in modular units during the renovation of University Hall and Ware Center.  This will help to decrease the purchase or lease cost of the modular units.
