Does the institution's physical campus plan include sustainability at a high level?:

A brief description of how the physical campus plan or amendment includes sustainability:

Sustainability has always been a major factor in the campus master plan. The Campus Master Planning process is part of the larger Strategic Planning that takes place at the direction of Florida’s Board of Governors. Florida Gulf Coast University’s Master Plan addresses Urban Design, Land Use, Recreation and Open Space, and Academic and Support Facilities, among many other elements of long range planning. Currently, FGCU is in the process of updating its Master Plan.

Major components to be included will consist of storm water capacity/ conveyance/ management, chilled water capacity/conveyance, traffic/transportation/parking and campus way finding/signage studies. The plan must include goals for a sustainable campus, and include resolution of pedestrian, bike, parking, transit, and traffic issues. It will also include a ten-year plan for major capital improvements that are necessary to accommodate the growth of the student population over the next ten years.
