ChargeThe College Instructional Equipment Committee operates as a subcommittee of the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee to ensure faculty, staff and student involvement in recommending allocations for instructional equipment. The Committee will make recommendations to the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee regarding the specific instructional equipment allocations.  Standard forms will be used and proposals will be elicited from every department. Requestors will send copies to the supervising Dean/Manager.


  • Review and rank instructional equipment requests received from departments based on the following criteria:

    7. 7. Housing/maintenance. (Does the discipline have space for the equipment?  Can it provide for its maintenance?)
    8. 8. Current equipment budget.  (Disciplines with no significant equipment funds in the current budget should receive greater consideration.)
    • 9. Recency of funding.  (When did the disciplines last acquire funding?)
