Building 1600 Problems/Issues ADA compliance is a joke Inadequate and outdated wiring is a fire hazard Old unused TV is still hanging from the ceilings (or the brackets are still here) Dirty and holely walls, dirty and torn carpets, poor circulations, Chemicals left from photograph is a health issue Half torn or missing window coverings Antiquated equipment and furniture for both teachers and students
Requesting $2 Millions Built-in computers in desks that can be raised or lowered so classrooms can be used both for lecture and for computer labs to accommodate accounting classes which have lab components as well as for additional CAS labs. Real ADA compliance workstations in labs/classrooms. Our students need exposure to the latest presentation and communications technology, as they will use this in their future careers. New wiring, paint, floor and window coverings Remove/clean up the old photography area and remodel the bathrooms Convert the many storage rooms/closets to study spaces and small group collaboration spaces to enhance student learning.
