Mission

The Provost Advisory Committee for Classrooms is charged with providing input on the OU-NC centrally scheduled classrooms to the Senior Vice President & Provost.  The Provost’s Advisory Committee for Classrooms, formed in response to a recommendation from the Classroom Renovation Task Force (2003-2004), is charged reviewing all aspects of the OU-NC classrooms, prioritized recommendations for improvements, and basic standards for classroom configuration and technology.  The committee will address concerns about centrally scheduled classrooms and requests for renovations and technology updates.  In addition, the committee will evaluate innovations in learning space design and instructional technology and provide advise on the implementation to enhance the student classroom expereince.  The Provost Advisory Committee for Classrooms is appointed by the Norman campus Senior Vice President and Provost and is composed of faculty and staff from the Norman campus who are involved in teaching in, scheduling, and renovation of the OU-NC centrally scheduled classroom.

Committee Structure

The Provost Advisory Committee for Classrooms is comprised of the main PACCr committee and a production sub-committee.

The main committee’s mission is to provide input on the standards, priorities, and reviewing requests related to centrally scheduled classrooms.  The committee includes nine faculty members in three-year rotating terms selected by the Provost based on a rotation cycle to provide input from a broad range of disciplines across the NC-campus.  The committee also includes representatives from the Provost’s Office, Classroom Management, Disability Resource Center, Information Technology, and Facilities Management.  The committee usually meets four times a year as needed.

The production sub-committee’s mission is to develop a timeline for implementation of classroom renovation and upgrades with the stakeholders on campus including the Provost’s Office, Registrar, Facilities Management, and Informational Technology.  Due to the nature of construction and scheduling, the committee may need to suggest minor modifications in renovation priorities to PACCr Committee.  The committee usually meet four times a year and as needed including written or virtual meetings.
