Standard Two: Institutional Commitment and Resources

        2.2    The sponsoring institution provides the program with the physical resources
               needed to support the achievement of the program’s mission.


        Physical resources include learning environments necessary to conduct teaching and facilitate learning.
        The sponsoring institution must provide faculty with adequate office and classroom space needed to
        fulfill their responsibilities.  Faculty office space should be conducive to course development and
        scholarly activities.  Space must be made available for private student advisement and program
        meetings.  Classrooms must be appropriately designed to meet the needs of the program’s curriculum
        delivery methods.

        Resources include, but are not limited to, access to computers, reliable and secure Internet service,
        instructional materials (computer hardware and/or software, technology-equipped classrooms,
        simulation devices, and other instructional aides), and library resources.

        Laboratories must be conducive to student learning and sufficient in size.  The sponsoring institution
        must provide the program with access to a fully energized laboratory.  An energized laboratory on
        campus is recommended.  The program may utilize laboratory space that is also used for patient care.  In
        the event patient flow disallows use of the laboratory space, the program must assure that laboratory
        courses are made up in a timely manner.  A mobile unit and/or simulation software cannot take the place
        of a stationary/fixed energized laboratory.

        The JRCERT does not endorse any specific physical resources.

        Required Program Response:
            •   Describe how the program’s physical resources, such as offices, classrooms, and laboratories,
               facilitate the achievement of the program’s mission.

        Possible Site Visitor Evaluation Methods:
            •   Tour of the classroom, laboratories, and faculty offices
            •   Review of learning resources
            •   Interviews with faculty
            •   Interviews with students
