PAE-3: Physical Campus Plan
Campus Planning + Design
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:
From the very first sentence and throughout virtually every section of the Campus Master Plan, sustainability is predominant. To emphasize the dedication to sustainability the RMCAD Board of Directors adopted the RMCAD Sustainability Initiative in 2006, and the Sustainability Office is housed in the Campus Planning + Design Department. This close working proximity means that the Sustainability Coordinator, Campus Planning + Design Department and the VP of Campus Planning + Design work together to integrate appropriate sustainable design and planning strategies for campus improvements and expansion.
As evidence, the first sentence of the Campus Master Plan is as follows:
RMCAD’s Office of Campus Planning + Design, created in March, 2010, is charged with the sustainable design, development and oversight of all campus improvements and expansions including the 23 acre site, 17 structures and all additional buildings to be added to the campus.
The year the physical campus plan was developed or adopted:
