REPORT WITHDRAWN BY COMMITTEE

SENATE COMMITTEE ON UNIVERSITY PLANNING

Dissolution of the Facilities Planning Advisory Board

(Advisory/Consultative)

Implementation: Upon Approval by the President

Introduction and Rationale

At the Faculty Senate meeting on October 10, 1989, the Faculty Senate approved an Advisory & Consultative Report requesting that the Facilities Planning Advisory Board (FPAB) be formed to facilitate the input of faculty in the planning process for university facilities including: new buildings, significant building alterations, reconfiguration of roadways and pedestrian ways, land planning studies.

FPAB has usually met twice a year.  The timing of the FPAB meetings is usually not aligned with the timing of construction projects, particularly projects during the summer.  Since the time that FPAB was formed, there have been alternate and more effective ways for faculty to provide input into facilities decisions.  Faculty are now actively involved in construction and renovation projects within their unit.  Input from faculty for a particular construction project can occur in a more timely and impactful manner than through scheduled FPAB meetings.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the Facilities Planning Advisory Board be dissolved.
