North Carolina Univ., Chapel Hill. Commission on Higher Education Facilities.
Results are reported of a study conducted to determine the status of available facility space in 113 North Carolina institutions of higher education at the end of the drop-add period of the 1990 fall term. Information is presented in four sections which reflect the four broad facilities concerns for which data is provided: the utilization of instructional space; interior space characteristics; building characteristics; and accessibility of facilities to the mobility impaired. The section on the utilization of instructional space provides ratios, percentages, and indices which relate the amount of instructional activity at an institution to various categories of campus space. The section dealing with interior space characteristics statistically describes campus space by its uses and the programs to which it is assigned. Also provided are data relating the sizes and capacities of classrooms and class laboratories. The section on building characteristics focuses on such data elements as building age, ownership, capital investment, condition, and replacement cost. The final section describes the amount and type of campus space which is accessible to persons who are confined to wheelchairs. The document contains an index, a list of participating institutions, and nine references. (JB)
