Contributed on behalf of Dr. Timothy Carey, Associate Vice President, Facilities

On behalf of the College’s Facilities Planning Committee, I am pleased to share with the campus community a revised Project Approval Request (PAR) process for capital construction and renovation projects. Although the new process will begin this fall, I wanted to ensure that there was an understanding of how the new process will be conducted. 

First and foremost, the new PAR process has been designed to ensure fairness and equity across the Divisions of the College. Accordingly, we have decentralized the initial component of the process by requiring all projects to be submitted directly to one’s Vice President. This and all other associated steps of the process – replete with timelines – can be found at this link. 

Thank you.
