Facilities Advisory Committee

The Facilities Advisory Committee was established to facilitate the updating of the University’s master plan and development of annual capital plans. The Committee is charged with advising the Chancellor, Provost and Vice Chancellors, as appropriate, on campus-level facility issues in six areas:  

  1. Capital priorities for the renovation of existing space.
  2. Capital priorities for the addition of new space.
  3. Priorities for the utilization and reassignment of existing space.
  4. Priorities for maintenance and repair projects.
  5. Committee input to the Campus Master Plan updates.
  6. Priorities for the enhancement of the campus landscape, including the annual allocation of the Robert H. Flarsheim Campus Beautification funds.  

Members commit to be active participants in as many workshops and meetings as possible.  Meetings are set at the start of each academic year, with no fewer than six meetings scheduled per year.  Workshops or additional meetings will be set as required.
