The Classroom Enhancement Project began in 1993/1994. This project was initiated by the Provost to upgrade existing classrooms to a higher standard and to provide capabilities for multi-media instruction.
Enhancements can include new finishes, new or reworked seating, modifications to building systems to accommodate a multi-media environment, and the installation of multi-media (AV) equipment.
Initially, selection criteria focused on improving rooms that served the greatest number of students based on the seating capacity of the room and rooms utilized by multiple colleges. Other considerations included rooms with the greatest physical need and the impact of future plans for renovations of an entire facility. Over time, the larger classrooms have been addressed and recent projects have focused on smaller classrooms.
The project began with a budget of $200,000, with $100,000 from the Office of the Provost and $100,000 from the Office of Budget and Finance. Funding increased steadily until 2002/2003 when the current budget of $1,000,000 was established, $400,000 from the Office of the Provost and $600,000 from the Office of Budget and Finance.
