Share Your Thoughts on the University’s Facilities Needs
What are the University’s greatest physical needs? More parking? New academic buildings? What would be the best use for the undeveloped property that the University owns north of the Sports Center?
Students, faculty, and staff will have an opportunity to provide input on the University’s facilities needs at an open forum on Thursday, April 30. Stop by the North Cafeteria in Gengras Student Union anytime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on April 30 to write down your thoughts and suggestions, and meet with the planners and committee members who are developing the University’s new Facilities Master Plan.
The University has retained the S/L/A/M Collaborative of Glastonbury, Conn., to develop the plan, which will serve as a blueprint for the growth and improvement of the campus over the next 10 years. The planners are working together with a Facilities Master Plan Steering Committee, with members representing regents, administration, faculty, staff, and students.
The master planning process began this past winter with an inventory of space on campus and inspection of existing facilities. The S/L/A/M/ Collaborative and the steering committee are now in the “concept development” phase, in which they are considering ideas for the future development of the campus.
At the forum on April 30, members of the University community will have an opportunity to talk with the planners and steering committee members about their goals and objectives, and write down their own thoughts on the University’s facilities needs.
