2013-2014 Annual Report
C-5 Faculty Building Advisory Committee

The Faculty Building Advisory Committee met twice during the 2013-14 academic year, once for a briefing on the Dell Medical School and to review a Landmarks proposal for public art associated with the Norman Hackerman Building (NHB), and once for an assessment of the future mission of the Committee.

The need for the mission review was necessitated by the commissioning of the Campus Master Plan Committee (CMPC), a governance body called for in the 2012 Campus Master Plan, whose mission overlaps some aspects of that of the FBAC.  The review resulted in a recommendation that the FBAC propose a new mission to the Faculty Council Executive Committee that favors the addressing of strategic, campus-wide facility issues over building-specific technical reviews.

Recommendations for a new mission statement were presented to the Faculty Council Executive Committee and are pending approval by 2014-15 Faculty Council.
