Building Coordinator Program

The diversity of University programs and activities often requires coordinations of building operations by various departments. The building Coordinator Program mission will be to facilitate communications, support facility capital planning and represent user needs within the buildings. These relationships once built between building occupants and appropriate campus support units such as Plant Operations, University Police (UHPD) and Environmental Health & Life Safety (EHLS) will help to enhance and improve facility services on campus. This program will be designed to provide a forum for discussion and resolution for occupancy problems. Building coordination is most efficiently accomplished through the assignment of Building Coordinators. Read More...
