Furnishings, Moving, and Storage
Attempts have been made to create a thoughtful, methodical approach to purchasing new and replacing old furnishings. Needs are prioritized and furnishings purchased as funding becomes available. Resources are spread among areas used by students, faculty, and staff through the prioritizing process. Requests for new furniture are heard annually by the Finance Committee, which sets the budget for each year. For further information, faculty may contact Monica Stearns (x9097) and all other departments may contact Elizabeth Henderson (x9341).
Space planning is done with the direction of the Dean in consultation with the Associate Deans and the department requesting the change. Considerations for furniture changes, alterations, and additional space possibilities are analyzed carefully with the needs of the whole Law Center kept in mind.
Moving services are available as needed to reduce the time-consuming and disruptive activities associated with changing offices. Professional moving services handle the larger moving projects, while facilities management staff members handle the smaller moving assignments. Moves completed by facilities management are typically scheduled for Fridays. Effective planning and execution will result in minimal down time, disruptions in schedules, and damage to office furnishings.
Every effort is made to provide faculty with modest, safe, and convenient file storage. Space constraints require that we limit storage to 10 banker boxes or the equivalent volume. Requests should be coordinated through Monica Stearns (x9097) or Elizabeth Henderson (x9341).
