This policy applies to all members of the university community, including all faculty, staff, students, volunteers, contractors, and visitors.

As delegated by the President, Facilities Management (FM) is responsible for:
  • maintenance and operation of University-owned and controlled facilities and properties;
  • all renovation, repair, and remodeling within University-owned and controlled buildings and grounds;
  • design and construction, directly or by means of a contract, of all renovation, repair, and remodeling of existing University-owned and controlled structures;
