List of Facilities, including Computer Labs and Curriculum Resource Centers

SOLES Facilities
In 2007, SOLES was excited to move into its new state of the art home, an 80,000 square foot building with wireless access throughout, a fully equipped auditorium, an executive training classroom, seven large classrooms, six seminar rooms, media resource centers and various study/project areas for students’ use.

The Warren Auditorium seats up to 188 attendees and is fully equipped with SMART technologies and video conferencing/recording capabilities. The executive training classroom features 60 executive-style chairs, web access, video conferencing, SMART technologies and an interactive console.  The large classrooms are configured with level three equipment, with the exception of the Hannon methods classroom, which is also video conferencing capable making it a level four classroom. The smaller seminar rooms were designed for a more intimate setting and interaction while allowing for use of the various technologies.  The seminar rooms are outfitted with level two equipment.

Resource centers include:

  • Two walk-in computer labs.  Each lab is equipped with an instructors sympodium and each station is equipped with a dual boot MAC computer.  Software on each computer includes: Microsoft Office, Real Player, Firefox, and Chrome.  The MAC side also includes: iWork, iLife, Adobe Creative Suite CS5, and Flip4mac, while the windows side also includes: Spss 18, ArcGis 9, Safari and itunes.  The larger lab is equipped with 32 individual stations, a printing station and is sometimes reserved for academic and training classes while the smaller lab is equipped with 24 stations and is dedicated solely to walk-in service.
  • Observation/recording rooms for clinical work where students are able to observe and witness first-hand private interview sessions.  Observing through one-way glass or recording the interview session students can analyze the session with peers or later in a classroom setting.
  • A learning lab that houses testing and other reference materials for student use.

In addition to traditional learning spaces, other areas were designed for individual or group studying and work.  There are two open spaces that we call “living rooms” where students can either gather to study, work on projects or simply socialize.  Wireless routers are conveniently located so that students can easily access the Internet. The space on the second floor also includes two desks with computers for drop in use.

Team project rooms were also created for groups that need their own space to work on projects together.  The rooms are equipped with table and chairs as well as executive white boards.

A formal quiet study room we call the “reading room” features executive back chairs, large tables, and a library that houses all SOLES dissertations and theses.
