Faculty and Unclassified Staff Handbook
Chapter 6 -- Business Affairs: General Regulations, Services, and Procedures
Each campus building has been assigned a supervisor to oversee the physical facilities as to personnel safety, building repairs, and other related matters. This leadership role is important not only for safety and maintenance purposes, but for conservation of energy and protection of state property housed in the facility. This University representative remains sensitive to building and equipment conditions that warrant attention by the physical plant department or other appropriate personnel. As a safety or repair need becomes evident to a faculty or staff employee, the employee is to notify the building supervisor of the problem. The building supervisor will then submit a work request to the physical plant department or take appropriate action. Routine replacement of worn/broken chairs, tables, chalkboards, carpet, etc., in common areas such as classrooms and lobby areas is a continuing need. Faculty members, custodial staff, and other employees are encouraged to be aware of items needing replacement and promptly report these to the building supervisor. The building supervisor will then submit a work request to the physical plant department or take appropriate action.
Individual departments are responsible for repair and replacement of instructional equipment within their areas. Instructional equipment includes such items as maps, video players, electronic equipment, etc.
Faculty and building supervisors are advised to contact the Physical Plant during normal business hours, or University Police or the Director of the Physical Plant regarding urgent concerns after hours.
