1. Introduction and Purpose
Loyalist College is committed to providing students with a conflict-free timetable that respects the Loyalist College Scheduling Principles, the faculty collective agreement and supports teaching and learning.
This policy applies to all instructional and other activity at the College campus.
3. Policy Statement
Space is a corporate resource to be allocated to instructional activity and other College activity in a manner that balances the quality of program timetables with efficient use of space. Space use will be reviewed collaboratively by the academic schools and the Space Committee each year.
The activity scheduled in a classroom is indicated on the timetable. If another activity is booked in a room that causes a conflict, the scheduled academic activity will prevail. Interdepartmental communication may occur in collaboration with the scheduler and Dean’s office to establish events well in advance to ensure conflicts are communicated to relevant managers to be resolved as early as possible.
