Campus and community open house presentation of the UAS draft master plan 2012 - 2022 followed by Q&A and comments

Tomorrow from 2-3:30 p.m., the University of Alaska Southeast will host a campus-wide open house and discussion of the UAS draft master plan for 2012-2022 in Egan Classroom wing 221/22, the Glacier View Room, presented by Krisan Osterby, Director of Planning with Perkins+Will of Minneapolis, Minn.

The Master Plan is developed based on criteria set by the UA Board of Regents, and makes recommendations for the physical development of the UAS campuses (Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka) over the next ten years. The recommendations are based on data collected on current and projected enrollment trends, housing, space utilization, room scheduling, building conditions, sustainability, landscape, parking and circulation, and other space needs for Universities based on peer institutions and national standards.

The Minneapolis-based team has worked closely with UAS over the past seven months and has received lots of feedback from campus and community groups, including Student Government, Faculty Senate, Staff Council and Community council members, as well as many individuals.

I just turn on my Costa Rica webcam and put my shades and Pet Sounds album on and party with those spreadsheets all day long.
