Facilities

The School of Education offers technology facilities to help support the use of technology in teaching, promote research, and to help facilitate presentations and conferences for SOE faculty, staff, and students.

Many spaces are shared primarily by the SOE community, but also by the larger SU community. The room configuration and condition is the responsibility of the person in charge of the meeting. You must leave the room in an orderly and clean state for the next users when you exit. You should make sure the windows are closed, any computers are logged off and projectors turned off, and, if the room is vacant, that lights are turned off. Food and drinks brought into the room should be removed when finished and excessive trash should also be removed. If the tables have been soiled, they should be cleaned up as well.
