Ecosystem of Collaboration

Engage in Master Planning process to meet the Faculty’s future needs for collaborative learning and research across all sectors and programs.

A facilities Master Plan would lead to orderly development of the faculty’s research, education and administrative facilities. This would address functionality and flexibility for departmental needs while creating a workplace environment that that enhance employee productivity and well-being.

The ultimate goal of the Master Plan is to ensure appropriate facilities infrastructure, communications technology, and adjacencies to enhance collaborative work across the Faculty for years to come.  It will also provide a framework for developing funding strategies to ensure sustainable operations.
