Campus Life Master Plan

In 2003 B&D was chosen by the University of Alaska Fairbanks to conduct a campus life master plan for the University of Alaska system. This plan included examinations of, and recommendations for, facilities, services, and operations related to housing, dining, bookstore, union, events and services, recreation, and child care. Our work consisted of: student focus groups; staff and administrator interviews; and surveys of students, faculty and staff. In 2004 we presented several facility options to the university’s steering committee and the general campus. Those options were refined and a financial plan was laid out for each. We were also asked to provide options and recommendation for reorganizing reporting and operational structures among Student Affairs and Auxiliaries, and worked with the school to develop a new structure for a variety of student life functions which improved the university’s service delivery to students.
