UT to present master planning findings

The University of Toledo’s campus master planning team will hold three forums this week to discuss initial findings about the use of campus facilities.

UT’s facilities and construction staff, working with consultants from SmithGroupJJR, spent fall semester gathering input and ideas about the use of space on the University’s multiple campuses from students, faculty, staff and the local community.  Interviews, focus groups and open forums held throughout the month of October provided an opportunity for stakeholders to offer opinions, ask questions and raise concerns about instructional space, housing, recreation and community use of campus facilities.

“The team has completed their analysis and is eager to share what they’ve learned about how well we’re using our classrooms and teaching labs, the facility conditions of all of our buildings, the natural resources of each campus, parking, transportation patterns and other ways to understand our campuses,” said Jason Toth, UT’s associate vice president for facilities and construction. “Our next step is to talk about where UT facilities are now and where we go from here.”

The master planning team will hold the sessions to share the common themes they identified and their findings from examining the University’s facilities and to share next steps. Students, faculty, staff and the community are invited and encouraged to attend either presentation.

  • 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.; Wednesday, February 3, 2016 in the Student Union Ingman Room on Main Campus.
  • 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m.; Wednesday, February 3, 2016 in the Driscoll Center Auditorium on Main Campus.
  • 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.; Thursday, February 4, 2016 in the Collier Building, Room 1200 on Health Science Campus.

The campus master planning team will be on hand for all sessions and includes representatives from UT’s facilities and construction staff and consulting group SmithGroupJJR.
