Campus facilities play their own unique and vital role in supporting CU Boulder’s mission of education and research. More than 8,000 students live on campus. More than 30,000 attend class each day. Another 10,000 people work here. The successful journey of each is directly impacted by the spaces where they learn, research, work and live. At the same time, the ways in which our campus community learns and works are ever-changing.
To ensure facilities continue to enhance student success and support the campus mission while simultaneously improving the efficiency and resiliency of our infrastructure well into the future, we embarked on a Strategic Facilities Visioning initiative to help us meet the pressing needs of today while aligning with the vision for tomorrow.
PREVIEW: A dynamic planning tool
The work of the Strategic Facilities Visioning team culminated in December 2019 with the development and refinement of a data-rich planning tool, PREVIEW, that will help our campus leadership make the most meaningful and impactful infrastructure investment decisions in support of the campus mission and the strategic priorities emanating from Academic Futures. PREVIEW will also play a vital role in testing and evaluating different facilities scenarios as we embark on creation of the next Campus Master Plan due in late 2021.
