Research Space Guidelines.
Wisconsin Coordinating Committee for Higher Education, Madison.
The amount of research space required in higher education depends first upon the level of activity devoted to research by those who participate, and second upon the type of academic program involved, e.g. humanities, social sciences, engineering. Knowledge of numbers, of faculty as well as of graduate students, is vital to achieve meaningful space projections. The guidelines should allow space based on established educational experience within the several academic disciplines, with certain exceptions such as a biotron complex or pollution research facility. The procedure calls for the weighting of personnel based upon time spent in research and the weighting of academic disciplines based upon prior knowledge of space needs. The two factors are multiplied to arrive at the number of net assignable square feet of space. (NI)
