Building Facilities Committee

Appointed by the Chancellor

The Building Facilities Committee functions as an advisory board to the chancellor. It reviews and makes recommendations concerning use of university facilities and  recommends priorities for construction and renovation projects.

Before any significant facilities renovation or modification is initiated, the associate vice chancellor for Facilities Management will seek approval of the design and project from the Building Facilities Committee. General repair and maintenance projects are excluded from this review requirement, although annual facilities plans should be shared with the committee.

Membership consists of one faculty member from each school and college (excluding the Graduate School and International Education); three deans' representatives (to rotate by college in the following order: AFLS, ARCH, ARSC, WCOB, EDUC, ENGR, LAWW); a representative from the Division of Student Affairs; a representative appointed by the dean of students who shall represent the needs and concerns for campus physical access; two students, one of whom shall be a student with a disability; a representative from the Office of the Provost; and the associate vice chancellor for Facilities Management or his or her designee.

The chairperson is elected from the members.
