Research Facilities Resource Review Process

2018 Research Process Overview

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences oversees 245 research areas providing 36,000 square feet of space for faculty to deliver high impact scientific research activities for undergraduate and graduate students.

To provide this oversight, CLAS administrates the Research Facilities Resource Review.  This process allows faculty to apply for research space for many different purposes.  The information provided to Digital Measures is preloaded into the Research Facilities Review System.  The faculty has the opportunity to edit all data uploaded into the system.  All submissions are peer-reviewed by the Research Facilities Review Committee, and its recommendations are submitted to the Dean.  Assigned renewals for research space depend on need and can range from several weeks to a maximum of five years.

If you have additional questions concerning acquiring new or additional space, please contact Aaron Perry at the link provided
