Planning & Projects organizes and manages campus planning, design and construction projects. The department is tasked to enhance the physical facilities of the campus, to support the goals of the institution in developing men and women with conscience, competence, and compassion, and to sustain a physical environment that supports the University's initiatives for a community of scholars, integrated education and effective use of resources. This is all done with consideration of the historical nature of the University, provisions for the safety of the campus community and implementation of sustainable practices.
