Facilities Planning Initiative

The following proposals were developed by the academic deans and the Provost's office in response to President Beggs’ request for the Provost to create a prioritized list of facilities needs within the division.  Each college was allowed to present two proposals, and the narratives for each proposal could not exceed one page.

The proposals are being reviewed and evaluated by the members of two groups: the Academic Affairs Planning Group that is comprised of the Provost, the Associate Provosts and the academic deans, and the Faculty Senate Planning and Budget Committee. 

The evaluation rubric and proposals are found here.

For questions about this process, please contact the Provost’s office at 978-3010.
