Research Space Use and Assignment Policy

Effective Date: July 1, 2010

Last Reviewed: July 1, 2015

Interim Date: July 21, 2015


All Meharry Medical College buildings, space, and land, regardless of source or location, are the property of the College.  Space, like personnel, funds and equipment, is an institutional resource that must be managed and maintained in accordance with the College’s mission and priorities.  The short- and long-range planning for optimum use of these valuable assets by the College is a continuing process.  Accordingly, the assignment and use of space must change, sometimes rapidly, with the priorities of the institution. 

Like any other scarce resource, campus space must be managed strategically to ensure its highest and best use.  Wherever possible, the colleges and units should promote the clustering and sharing of research space among groups of faculty working in related areas, and/or requiring access to similar types of specialized equipment.
