About the Plan
The State Board of Higher Education (SBHE) mandated all NDUS campuses file a facility master plan no later than April 1, 2016, with drafts due in February, 2016. In addition, President Kelley outlined five core institutional goals for the University to aspire to by the year 2020. In order to meet these goals, we must make focused investments in facilities to directly advance UND’s mission and make sure we are using our existing square footage in the most effective and efficient way possible.
Specifically, the steering committee is being asked to make recommendations to the President’s Executive Council on the following:
- Perform initial review of space utilization and discuss additional space needs
- Review work already developed on repurposing of the existing medical school and make
- Prioritization of classrooms slated for renovation each year
We will tap the knowledge of an external facilities planning and campus design consultant. Gary Hay of Hay-Dobbs Architecture, Planning, and Interiors Firm entered into a contract with UND to consult on this process, and he will be available throughout the next several months as we proceed. Gary completed work with UND before and is familiar with our campus. Staff from the Department of Facilities Management will provide information to the committee.
As noted above, we are required to complete draft report by February 2016. This means we need to forge ahead and make decisions quickly. We anticipate the Steering Committee will meet every 3 -4 weeks and also provide direction and input between the meetings.
We hope you share our excitement over this master facilities planning initiative. This is a rare opportunity for UND to shape its physical character, appearance, and operations for decades to come. The ideas we generate and then come together to support will ensure UND’s continued success and distinction.
