The following message is from Provost Rogan Kersh and Senior Vice President Hof Milam:
We are pleased to announce that the university plans to implement a centralized, campus-wide license for Event Management System (EMS) for scheduling of non-classroom space on campus. This software will allow us to manage space far more effectively, provide a user-friendly process for reserving conference rooms and other space, and collect/utilize accurate usage data.
As a result of Strategic Resource Initiative (SRI) work this past year, we realized that more than 30 individual space managers across campus were utilizing various practices for scheduling space. After assessing our current processes and costs, EMS was identified as the best solution for efficiency and ease of use. In addition, by consolidating existing EMS licenses and maintenance fees currently held by several groups on campus, we are saving the university thousands of dollars.
A cross-campus implementation team will spend the next 6-8 months working with space managers across campus to implement the software. Our grateful thanks to this team, whose members are:
- Mike Ayuso, IS
- Sean Brittain, Facilities & Campus Services
- James Buckley, Campus Life
- Alisa Elmore, Admissions
- Kettie Fickter, Athletics
- Max Floyd, Campus Life
- Karen Frekko, School of Business
- Beth Hoagland, Provost’s Office
- Trevor Hughes, School of Law
- Mary Beth Lock, ZSR Library
- Sharon Melnik, Conference Services
- Harold Pace, University Registrar
- Randy Rogan, College
- John Wise, Hospitality and Auxiliary Services
We are looking forward to reaping the benefits of this approach to space management.

A three-month project to improve a field for use by Campus Recreation has prompted construction this week of a temporary road at the Reynolda Road entrance to the University.
The gravel road will extend from the campus entrance down to a nearby area by Reynolda Village called Water Fall Field. Construction of the temporary road, which will be used by trucks and heavy equipment in the months ahead, began Thursday.
Grading and sodding of the field will be completed by December. When work is finished, the roadbed will be removed, mulched and allowed to re-establish as a natural area.
