Process for Requesting Expansion Space and/or Renovations
- Space for new faculty and staff (including replacement hires)
Requests for renovation, construction or assignment of space for new faculty or staff hires should be submitted by the requesting Dean, Vice President or Vice Provost as part of the unit's annual budget presentation. Once a new hire has been authorized, the hiring unit should submit to the SARC the New/Replacement Hire Space Request form with a copy of the new hire approval. The request should be completed by the relevant unit head and approved by the supervising Dean, Vice Provost or Vice President. The requestor should include the amount of funding to be provided by the requesting unit.
Requests for the renovation, construction or assignment of space resulting from replacement hires should also be submitteed using the New/Replacement Hire Space Request form completed by the requesting unit and approved by the supervising Dean, Vice President or Vice Provost. The requestor should indicate the amount of funding to be provided by the requesting unit.
- Renovations of existing space (academic and non-academic)
Requests for renovation/reassignment of space not resulting from new or replacement hires should be submitted on the Space Renovation/Reassignment Request form. This request should be completed by the appropriate unit head and approved by the supervising Dean, Vice President or Vice Provost. The requestor should include the amount of funding to be provided by the requesting unit.
Note: Requests tied to the start of the fall semester should be submitted to the SARC no later than the preceding April 1.

The team conducted much of the water sample testing in the University’s Shimadzu Center for Advanced Analytical Chemistry.
