Specific Charges for 2013-2014

All Specific Charges are in addition to each committee's "General" Charge in the Council Bylaws

  1. With the support of the Classroom Committee, investigate the adequacy of classroom and event space on campus, including various sizes, formats (dry/wet labs, lectures, discussions) and technology needs, with special attention to the central pool classrooms and suggest changes to ones that need it most. Consider alternate strategies for enhanced access to non-central pool spaces.

  2. Working with Parking and Transportation Services, discuss and recommend a comprehensive bicycle communication plan for the campus with a focus on routes and paths, construction detours, and parking for bikes on campus. This discussion should incorporate public safety and facilities needs and concerns.

  3. Investigate and understand the maintenance of Penn’s buildings, including the new Century Bond program. Suggest ways that the Penn community can assist Facilities in the effort to make Penn’s campus more energy efficient.

  4. Review and discuss this Committee’s general charge and identify two or three issues that should be given the highest priority for the committee’s work in academic year 2014-15.
