The space team is focusing on plans for the move-in process, which will occur after new furniture for the 4th and 5th floors has been installed in the new building. The current timeline for completion of this work is the end of August. Thereafter, personal effects may be transferred, but occupancy by faculty and staff cannot occur until after inspections have been conducted and a certificate of occupancy has been received.
A checklist and guidelines will be created to manage the transition for those moving into the new building as well as for those moving to new locations in our current building. Feedback regarding individual circumstances and unit preferences will be gathered from faculty, staff, and iSchool managers, and moving assistance will be provided as needed on a case-by-case basis. In addition, Zoom sessions will be implemented in the near future to assist with the planning process.
While moving can be stressful, the space team and iSchool managers will be working to provide the support needed to facilitate each person's move. Despite any short-term disruptions, we can look forward to the long-term gains offered by expanded spaces for individual and group work, which will benefit our students, faculty, and staff. In addition, this expansion will raise our School’s visibility on campus, reflecting the importance of our work and contributions.
