The Teaching Center has developed a series of consistent, yet flexible standards for the selection and placement of all classroom components. The standards are customized to fit the needs of the major department(s) in the building, to the extent possible within budget limitations. Decisions to add technology are based on campus needs, the extent and feasibility of the renovation required, and available funding. The Teaching Center assesses campus needs for classroom technology by administering Classroom Evaluation Questionnaires each semester and by analyzing data gathered by the Office of the University Registrar.
Design standards for classroom technology include the following:
To view descriptions and photos of each classroom, see the Classroom Directory.

The staff has expertise in developing classroom design standards that can ensure that the physical layout of the room and the multimedia technology will enhance the learning environment and fit the particular teaching needs of the department.
