A town hall meeting will be held Jan. 22, 2018, at 11 a.m. in 226 Weill Hall to gather input for the cross-divisional Scheduling and Space Inventory Project currently underway. This project aims to develop a universitywide system for managing academic and event reservations and facility space; the town hall meeting is open to all members of the Cornell community.

The town hall will focus on Cornell’s current and planned space and scheduling policies, including proposed revisions that are being used to inform the project.

The Scheduling and Space Inventory Project is based on the late President Elizabeth Garrett’s 2015 survey to determine areas of administrative burden, which identified facilities inventory management and reservations as one of the top four areas for improvement.

The project is focusing on three areas:

  • implementing a new academic and event scheduling tool that will allow for centralization of services where processes are currently duplicated;
  • replacing the current Facilities Inventory System and other space-management software with an Integrated Workplace Management System; and
  • the reporting, analytics and creation of a Space DataMart.
