West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission
The West Virginia Higher Education Facilities Information System was formed as a method for instituting statewide standardization of space use and classification; to serve as a vehicle for statewide data acquisition; and to provide statistical data that contributes to detailed institutional planning analysis. The result thus far is the production of a statewide utilization summary report. This report is limited to the study of the utilization of rooms classified on each campus as a classroom or a teaching lab (referred to herein as classlab) The benefit to each fully participating institution was the receipt of the small-scale drawings in both AutoCAD and PDF format. As well as access to the rooms database and Web-based reports which are generated from institutional facilities data and the course schedule. During this first year of the project the following actions occurred: (1) creation of the centralized database system with interactive Web access; (2) onsite visits to each fully participating institution to gather physical facilities information; (3) creation of small-scale drawings and a rooms inventory for each E & G building on each campus; (4) acquisition of course schedule data from each institution for Fall '02; and (5) overlay of course schedule with physical data to develop utilization studies. Appended are: (1) Institutional Listing; (2) Institutions' Campus Listing; and (3) Scope of Survey.
