The purpose of the Space Planning Allocation policy is to establish a procedure for reviewing and recommending to the president the allocation or reallocation of existing spaces to support the mission and strategic goals of the College.


This policy will apply to all campus spaces in owned or leased properties. Any academic or administrative unit may request new space, the reallocation of existing space, and permission to change the use. The unit head requesting space must complete a Space Allocation Form. The Office of Plant Operations – Facilities and Office of Information Technology will review the request regarding maintenance and IT needs. Once reviewed by the Office of Plant Operations and Office of Information Technology, the form will be routed to the intermediate supervisor/s and appropriate Vice President or Special Assistant to the President for Safety, Security, and Plant Operations for approval. The Space Allocation Form will be used to request allocation of space, reallocation of existing space, and/or changing the use of existing space. After the form is approved, the unit head will forward the request to the Space Planning Advisory Committee (SPAC) for review. The Committee chair will forward the committee’s recommendation to the President who will make the final decision.

The SPAC will review space allocation requests as needed.

When competing needs arise, the highest demand and best use of space specific to the College’s Strategic Plan will guide the space allocation decision-making process. The Chair of the Space Planning Advisory Committee will present the recommendations to the President.
