The Faculty Building Advisory Committee (FBAC) has met eight times thus far during the academic year and will continue to meet as necessary during the remaining months of the academic year. All members of the committee are acknowledged for their commitment of time and energy to the activities of the FBAC during this year.

Committee Activities:
Capital Improvements Program: The FBAC surveyed the needs of the various academic and non-academic units of the University in terms of capital projects and submitted recommendations to the central administration for purposes of the biennial update of the CIP listing.
Artwork in Public Places: The policy developed by the FBAC now has received all necessary approvals for implementation on campus. During this past year, three proposals for statues have been evaluated by a subcommittee of the FBAC, and two were rejected for lack of artistic merit.
Hotel and Conference Center: The FBAC continues to monitor the evolution of this facility, which currently is in the programming phase.
Almetris Duren Residence Hall: The FBAC and its Master Plan Subcommittee continue to monitor this project as final plans for it are prepared. Ground-breaking is expected in early summer.
Biomedical Engineering Building: The FBAC and its Master Plan Subcommittee continue to monitor this project which is the final stages of the programming phase.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging Building: The FBAC and its Master Plan Subcommittee evaluated a proposed structure at PRC for housing an MRI facility and recommended its approval.
Kinsolving Women’s Residence Hall: The FBAC and its Master Plan Subcommittee evaluated a proposed addition to this facility and recommended its approval.
Fire and Life Safety: The FBAC and its Master Plan Subcommittee have consulted on several projects associated with FLS issues in residence halls.
Intercollegiate Athletics. The FBAC and its Master Plan Subcommittee are monitoring the Bellmont Hall Fire and Life Safety project, which currently is in the programming stage.
Tower Garden: The FBAC evaluated a proposal associated with the Tower Garden project planned in the vicinity of the turtle pond on Inner Campus Drive. Although sympathetic to the proposal to honor individuals through an electronic database, the proposed facility associated with it was not recommended.
Blanton Museum/Speedway Landscaping: The FBAC has evaluated plans for landscaping associated with the museum and Speedway north to Dean Keeton Blvd. We continue to monitor this project as it evolves.
