UAS is working on updating our facility and infrastructure masterplan.

Policy Guidance

University of Alaska Board of Regents Policy 5.12.050 requires each university campus to update its infrastructure masterplan every 5-7 years. Due to budget challenges facing the university in 2019, UAS requested that our masterplan update be delayed. That delayed masterplan process has started up again, and will continue through this academic year, with the goal of presenting the updated masterplan to the University of Alaska Board of Regents during their June 2022 meeting.

Project Scope

The masterplan scope includes a review of all of the facilities and infrastructure associated with the University of Alaska Southeast campuses. Soliciting input from campus users and stakeholders to identify what is working, what is not working, getting ideas for how facilities and infrastructure can be managed into the future, and development of a planning document that will help guide facility and infrastructure management for at least the next ten years.
