Michael Harwood, associate vice president, heads up the Campus Planning and Facilities Management portfolio which is comprised of five distinct units, each charged with a critical aspect of our campus infrastructure:
Facilities Services consists of nearly 175 employees, all working to support the university through the maintenance and cleaning of campus buildings, equipment, and grounds. Our commitment to campus is guided by our three core principles: stewardship, service, and value.
The Utilities and Energy department is responsible for the safe and efficient operation, maintenance, and repairs of the campus utility systems which include centralized production and distribution of campus heating steam, chilled water, electrical power, compressed air, and other services to more than 80 buildings and nearly 4 miles of distribution tunnels.
Campus Planning guides the planning and design of campus to accommodate growth and change while preserving its heritage and enriching environments that support the university's mission of teaching, research and public service. We manage campus-wide planning and review, pre-design project planning, community planning, space use and needs analysis, real estate acquisitions, and lease management.
The Design and Construction team includes architects, interior designers, engineers, accountants, and project management personnel capable of providing complete services associated with projects ranging from a small renovation of an existing office to the construction of a major campus building. Projects are simple to initiate from our website and we would be glad to come and discuss your project.
The Office of Sustainability’s mission is to lead the integration of sustainability into the University of Oregon’s operations, curriculum, co-curriculum, research, and engagement with the broader community. We accomplish this by maintaining a perse portfolio of activities that are organized into the following five focus areas: leadership, policy development, projects and programs, monitoring, and outreach.
