New Committee Appointed to ‘Refresh’ the Campus Framework
For the last seven years, the Campus Framework has served as a “living roadmap,” a 20-year guide for enhancing the University’s physical landscape in alignment with the Academic Strategic Plan and the vision for an unmatched student experience. This week, Chancellor Kent Syverud announced the appointment of a Campus Framework Refresh Committee to develop an addendum to the existing Campus Framework to advance it to the next level.
“Members of the Refresh Committee will reflect on both the accomplishments of the last several years and the lessons learned,” says Chancellor Syverud. “With that knowledge, the committee will offer recommendations on how the Campus Framework might be refreshed and revised to align with the current and future needs of our students and faculty in areas such as housing, academics and the entire student experience.”
Pete Sala, vice president and chief facilities officer, will chair the Refresh Committee. Other members include:
- Cerri A. Banks, vice president of student success and deputy to the senior vice president of the student experience
- Steve Bennett, senior vice president for international programs, academic operations and chief of staff, Academic Affairs
- Julia Czerniak, associate dean and professor, School of Architecture
- Steven Einhorn, Board of Trustees
- Allen Groves, senior vice president and chief student experience officer
- Kris Klinger, senior associate vice president, Auxiliary Services
- Michael Speaks, dean and professor, School of Architecture
Sasaki Associates will continue its work as a consultant on the project and serve as a partner to the new committee as its members consider future priorities to support academic excellence, the research enterprise, the student experience and student housing.
Since the Campus Framework was first implemented, the University has executed on nearly $300 million in capital projects. Several mission critical construction projects have been completed, including the transformations of the stadium, Barnes Center at The Arch and, most recently, the Schine Student Center, the building and opening of the National Veterans Resource Center at the Daniel and Gayle D’Aniello Building, and the creation of the Einhorn Family Walk. The University also made significant investments in classroom technology, completed accessibility enhancements throughout campus and upgraded several residence halls.
