Access prioritization

We prioritize the resources available to support the student experience as follows:

  1. Curriculum and Instruction
    For example: lab-based coursework, undergraduate student capstone, and graduate student thesis/dissertation completion.  Please note these requests are processed through your course.
  2. Faculty-led Sponsored Research
    For example: research projects funded through external sources such as grants and contracts. Please note these requests need to come through your faculty principle investigator (PI).
  3. Department-Affiliated Extracurricular Activities (RSOs)
    For example: design-build clubs and competitions.  Please note this process is covered in the resource materials on our A&A Student Clubs and Organizations page.  Generally one facilities liaison is appointed per group.  For questions, talk to your faculty RSO advisor.
