Classroom support is a collaborative endeavor at the University of Maryland.  It involves campus-wide support groups, such as the Scheduling Office, Operations and Maintenance, and the Division of Information Technology, which manages the main Classroom Support Office and several other support offices, as well as college and department support units.

This two-tiered approach to support requires coordination which is the purpose of the Classroom Support Project (CSP).  The CSP Operations Committee brings all of these groups together to coordinate efforts and share information.  The group regularly surveys users to get suggestions and identify areas where services can be approved.  The CSP Operations Committee is chaired by Jennifer Riggs who represents the Office of the Registrar.  She can respond to any questions about the CSP.

Oversight of Classrooms

The Classroom Support Project was developed by the Teaching Facilities Committee (TFC), which is chaired by Terence McCann, Director of Academic Facilities in the Provost's Office.  The TFC looks at the "big picture" issues.  It develops policies, identifies priorities, provides guidance on funding, and solicits input annually from the Deans and other interested parties regarding future upgrade projects.
