    2. Update on Facilities Services Survey
      There were 321 individuals who responded to the Faculty Senate sponsored "Facilities Services Customer Satisfaction Survey" that was open for campus-wide comment during the summer of 2005. The outcome of the survey and the follow-up planned by Facilities Services will be presented at the February 2006 Faculty Senate Meeting. The twelve questions each allowed the respondent to provide comments, and these will be useful in helping identify some of the areas needing attention. Comments relative to classroom space and other space utilization will be shared with the University's Space Committee that is currently working under the leadership of Dean Mark Abbott. Questions concerning the Facilities Services Survey can be directed to Stella Coakley, 2004 Faculty Senate President, at stella.coakley@ oregonstate.edu.
