Action Items

  1. COE ECE AERPAW Research Lab and Towers (Space Request #19-16): I. Guvenc introduced this collaborative research project and presented the proposed first-year phase tower and antenna locations. The proposal for Centennial Campus is to upgrade the pole-mounted and roof-top antennas/equipment at existing locations. The proposal for Lake Wheeler Rd. Field Lab is to construct a new 60’ tower and communications The AERPAW team will bring proposed future locations at Centennial Campus and Lake Wheeler back to the USC for review. The committee approved a USC Staff Support working group comprised of URED and OUA staff to coordinate with the AERPAW team on antenna and equipment locations at Centennial Campus for the first-year and future phases of the project. The committee approved the tower and equipment location at Lake Wheeler Rd. Field Labs pending coordination with College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Staff Support working group. Future installation locations shall be brought to USC for final approval following coordination with Staff Support.
  1. CED TELS Sublease of CHASS Strategic Lease (Space Request #19-21): L. Van Roekel stated that College of Education (CED) is requesting to move Wolfpack WORKS program from 2526 Hillsborough Street leased space to 1033 Wade Ave leased space. The Wade Ave location is higher-quality space at a lower cost. The CHASS Psychology Adult Development Lab will vacate the Wade Ave space when Dr. Thomas M. Hess retires in June 2020. The current lease at 1033 Wade can be extended through February 2022 to accommodate CED. The 2526 Hillsborough Street lease expires in September 2020. This transfer of space would create a vacancy in a portion of the 2526 Hillsborough St space. L. Johnson stated that the CHASS Research Office could also vacate the 2526 Hillsborough St lease when the lease expires and move to Broughton until Page Hall is ready for occupancy. This would reduce University lease space inventory. The committee approved the transfer of leased space at 1033 Wade Ave from CHASS to CED. The entire 2526 Hillsborough Street lease costs will need to be paid according to existing lease terms until expiration by the CHASS Research Office. CED and CHASS should execute an MOU documenting the transfer of space.
  1. Space Allocations ASC Backfill (Info Item 19.22): S. Jones-Humienny stated that USC Staff Support had been working with the Division for Academic and Student Affairs (DASA), Campus Enterprises (CE), Global Engagement, and the Visitor Center regarding space in Talley Student Center following the opening of the Academic Success Center in D.H. Hill Jr. Library. There are more requests for space within Talley than can be accommodated. The priorities for vacated space were identified as:
    • Strategize Talley and Witherspoon space allocations
    • Locate New Student Programs in a student-focused Building
    • Consolidate DASA administration

The Committee approved reallocations in:

    1. Talley for Visitor Center, Passport Services, and CE building staff
    2. Witherspoon for DASA student media consolidation to accommodate New Student Programs
    3. Park Shops for DASA administration consolidation, and
    4. Pullen for DASA functions.
