Campus Master Plan

UAS is working on updating our facility and infrastructure masterplan.

2022 CMP Final Draft Submitted

We reached an important milestone! The Final Draft of our 2022 Campus Master Plan was submitted to the BOR Facilities and Land Management Committee (FLMC) on Friday, May 6. The FLMC will spend the next month reviewing our plan and if all goes well, make a recommendation for the full BOR approval in June. After BOR approval, this document will serve as a tool to guide future physical development of our University campus, in conjunction with UAS Strategic Plan.

We gratefully acknowledge and thank all of the Master Plan Advisory Committee members, the Executive Cabinet, the many groups and individuals that gave their ideas, opinions and input to the consultant team/core team. The process was democratic and civil, and all who participated were free to express their ideas. With this, we achieved a goal of institutional and academic excellence, in my opinion.

We also gratefully acknowledge Alison Krein, who developed the cover of the Master Plan that with her master stroke embraces all of the ideas within.

UAS is working on updating our facility and infrastructure masterplan. This process began with hiring consultant, Jensen Yorba Wall who has teamed with DLR Group and Welsh/Whitely Architects to help us review our facilities and infrastructure, collect relevant data and comments from users of UAS facilities, and develop an updated masterplan document.

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.
