College of Arts and Sciences Computer Teaching Labs

The College of Arts and Sciences internally supports a number of computer teaching labs in certain departments. In general these labs are specific to the discipline of the department that owns them and are vital to the departmental curriculum. These labs are closed to use by anyone other than those taking classes within that departmental discipline.

Criteria For Selection

Theses spaces were identified via a 2001 inventory as computer labs that meet the following criteria:

  • The space contained computers used by students (graduate or undergraduate).
  • The computers were owned by a CAS department (and thus not owned by UVM in general or some other non-CAS division, or operated by Media Services or CIT, etc.), and were housed in a space managed by a CAS department.
  • The space is a vital part of the department curriculum and students in this department cannot complete their assignments or associated tasks without using this space.

Consideration of New Spaces

The College discourages departments from establishing new computer teaching labs unless it is unavoidable. Computer labs are very expensive in both dollars and FTEs; not only to the College but to the host department and faculty involved in teaching courses using the lab. Should a department wish to submit a new space to this program, they should send a request in writing to Arts and Sciences Computing Services. Note that the space under consideration must meet the criteria outlined above and that replacement of this space may not occur for several years after the date of request depending on the state of the lab space. Remember that we're dealing with a relatively fixed level of funding here thus funding your lab may force us to delay replacing someone else's.
