About Planning

The Planning Team guides the University system's decisions about land use, urban design, open space, density, and mobility/circulation networks at multiple levels. This work is based on the campus community's strategic objectives, and translates academic priorities into defined capital projects.  High impact capital projects begin with a feasibility study process. Planning works closely with Capital Project Management to ensure successful project implementation. Planning staff also manage jurisdictional interactions related to project requirements, which provides essential support for capital project and real estate transactions.
