Capital Projects Planning
The Office of Planning and Institutional Research manages and coordinates planning and schematic design phases of major construction and renovations at the University. Planning work is carried out in close cooperation with the department of Facilities to ensure a seamless transition to completion of design and construction, which is managed by that office.
Annual Space Survey
In connection with our strategic planning work, Provost Steve Goldstein has asked the Office of Planning and Institutional Research (OPIR) to partner with the Provost’s office in conducting the first annual campus-wide space survey. The space survey launched mid-October. The primary goal of this effort is to help the Provost's office understand and plan for meeting the needs of departments and administrative units. As a starting point, it is essential that we have a clear picture of how we currently use the 2.76 million square feet on our campus.
OPIR began by contacting departments and administrative offices across the University to identify individuals who would be asked to serve as “space administrators.” Beginning in mid-October, each space administrator (SA) was asked to review information about space used by his/her unit and to confirm or provide information about how various spaces are utilized and occupied.
