Scheduling Working Group

Cal State LA has achieved enormous positive change in the past several years.  Our enrollment has grown significantly. We have changed from the quarter system to semesters, and in doing so revised our class schedule time grid. Renovations have begun on some of our buildings which took classrooms offline, but has also given us opportunities to shape new classroom design. We have incentivized a range of course sizes and formats, which has increased demand for specific classroom sizes and designs. Our continued ability to serve our campus community depends on our ability to innovate in how we use our classroom resources.

Led by the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs the Scheduling Working Group will be comprised of individuals with a range of scheduling expertise, including department chairs, associate deans, scheduling office staff, and facilities staff.
