The Campus Planning Committee was revitalized in 2003 in response to a growing call for policies and procedures to protect environmental and cultural resources on campus.

Its mission is to:

  • develop and maintain a campus master plan;
  • develop and recommend policies regarding campus planning, site selection and design for new facilities, and maintenance and preservation of historic and natural resource on campus;
  • incorporate environmental protection and accessibility accommodation issues into overall campus planning; and
  • recommend policies for capital construction and renovation; and
  • maintain a plan for the use of university facilities

The Committee worked with Sasaki Associates in 2008-2009 to develop a campus master plan (see the Campus Master Plan page), which it now utilizes to guide decision making.
