The goal of the physical plant is to maintain and/or improve University facilities through the effective management of resources to efficiently balance cost, schedule, and quality of work performance in support of the business division purpose and objectives.
The plant currently maintains 22 academic buildings and 16 residence halls as well as the campus grounds. We also manage renovation projects and the construction of new buildings.
