Space is a limited resource and, consequently, must be managed in a responsible manner in order to best advance the college's mission and strategic priorities. Flexibility is required in order to respond to changes in college priorities, curriculum, instructional practices, inter-program coordination, and workflow. As important as location is to a business or residential real estate market, it can be just as important in an educational setting. As such, decisions about space allocation need to be made carefully, be data- and planning-driven, involve appropriate consultation with all affected stakeholders, and be consistent with shared principles and values.
