Our campus planners look at the big picture to conceptualize and consider how we can best shape our built environment.
Capital Strategies' physical and environmental planning (PEP) office is responsible for campus planning. Campus planning guides the future development of our built environment (buildings, open spaces, transportation and circulation, and infrastructure improvements) to maximize the efficient use of University property, and to keep the campus functioning effectively. Under the direction of the Campus Architect, PEP's functions include capital planning, space program development, obtaining project approvals, and navigating environmental regulations.
