Guiding Principles for University campus space:
- All University facilities, buildings, and land belong to the University as a whole and are subject to assignment, reassignment, and redevelopment to meet the overall needs and best interest of the institution. This includes but is not limited to all academic, administrative (inclusive of office and classroom spaces), residence hall space, and auxiliary facilities. Long-range planning for optimum use of these valuable, essential University assets is a continuing process.
- Space utilization will be determined in pursuit of innovative teaching and integrated learning across the entire student experience, optimum allocation, utilization and operation, and strive for the maximum benefit of available resources.
- Space assignments and decisions for improvements or investments in space shall be made in alignment with the University’s Strategic Plan and set priorities, and aligned with available resources.
- Space usage and assignments shall promote fiscal responsibility and University sustainability by considering the short and long-term costs attributed to space.
