Facilities Planning Advisory Committee

The committee is advisory to the cabinet, and all members have voting rights. Committee members are expected to act to benefit the university as a whole and make recommendations consistent with the university's strategic plan.

The cabinet seeks broad-based and timely advice in areas such as space utilization, land use, campus development, capital program requests, pedestrian and vehicle access, parking, campus beautification and related issues. The committee is charged with providing advice regarding these areas. The university architect serves as chair.

Committee members are appointed for a four-year term and may be reappointed for one additional term.
