The mission of the Campus Architect position is to sustain the design integrity of the nationally recognized Boulder campus built environment. Pressure toward this end exists from the campus community of students, faculty, staff, and administrators; as well as from alumni of the University and the Board of Regents. This position also receives input from citizens of Boulder and the State of Colorado, including the professional design community. In essence, this position is charged with monitoring collective project compatibility in terms of design and fit with other campus facilities and the available assets of the University.
The role of the Campus Architect is to monitor, advise, counsel, and recommend approval of all physical change to the Boulder campus facilities and grounds – whether from outside consultants or internal sources – so that each alteration is compatible with design and planning guidelines, the recommendations of the Boulder Campus Planning Commission, the University Design Review Board, and executive level campus administrators.
