The Classroom Committee was established by the Provost in January 2000 and is charged with evaluating classroom use and quality, and recommending to the Provost and the Deans policies on classroom utilization, scheduling, physical improvements and priorities for assignment.
Much of the work of the Classroom Committee is accomplished through subcommittees that focus on classroom quality (condition) and on classroom utilization. Additionally, the co-chairs work with faculty and staff from the Chicago campus to explore improvements in the quality and utilization of classrooms in Chicago. A recurring funding allocation has been established for the Classroom Committee to address priority needs.

Classroom Quality Standards
The University is committed to maintaining its classrooms in a state of readiness for teaching and learning. This includes both regular custodial services to the room itself, attention to the repair of the desks, chairs, lights, shades, and other classroom equipment, and ensuring that all special equipment such as overhead projectors, screens, and other audio-visual equipment are in proper working order. Please help us maintain an optimal teaching and learning environment at Northwestern by promptly reporting broken equipment or other issues with classroom cleanliness.
