Facilities Services strives to advance that educated world by maintaining and optimizing the physical resources and environments of this campus. Our number one priority is to create and maintain a clean, safe environment for students to study, faculty to teach, and staff to work. Our buildings protect us from the elements and give us a congregation point for academic, social, and economic advancement.
Our campus is also home to many of the region's oldest buildings, as well as its newest and most modernized. Maintaining this mix of historic and modern buildings contributes tremendously, if not defines, the character of our campus. They also convey an image of a solid, lasting institution appealing to both students, parents, faculty, and staff. Our iconic historic buildings are often what alumni think of as they remember the campus. Along with beautiful, manicured landscapes and research-minded functionality, a properly maintained campus allow us to recruit the brightest, most talented students and faculty, while also increasing property values within the region. Newly constructed facilities meet the growing demands of research and education while stimulating local jobs and economies throughout their investment, and they also utilize the most sophisiticated building systems to optimize space, energy use, and security.
