What is the Campus Facilities Master Plan?

The UAA Campus Facilities Master Plan (CFMP) ensures that the long- and short-term planning of the physical campus environment aligns with the aspirations of UAA 2025. An updated CFMP will include processes to ensure we have adequate infrastructure to accelerate excellence and continually improve facilities and space.  This project will support the following UAA 2025 aspirations:

  • Putting students first      
  • Embracing a culture of equity and inclusion          
  • Embracing our role as a trusted and respected community partner            
  • Positively impacting communities and the world through innovation

Master Plan’s Purpose:

  • Promote themes generated from UAA’s academic and strategic plans.
  • Ensure the built environment is flexible and adaptive.
  • Align campus facilities with the overall institutional direction.

Why we need a Master Plan now:

  • 2013 Update
    The existing plan is outdated and no longer reflects the institution’s plans, policies, and procedures. Community campus plans were last updated in 2010 and Anchorage campus masterplan was last updated in 2013.

  • Accreditation

    UAA will host a Mid-Cycle Evaluation in October 2021. By starting the process now, UAA demonstrates that the major planning process of updating the master plan aligns with the aspirations of UAA 2025 and contributes to meeting our mission.

  • Identity
    The master plan can identify strategies that will strengthen UAA’s physical infrastructure and promote improvements through increased space utilization, energy savings, environmental stewardship, sustainability, and equity.
