Refining and defining the use of space is an integral part of the foundation of the campus and will serve to undergird UCR’s path to preeminence and focus on excellence. Increased enrollment and faculty growth necessitate a close look at how space is currently utilized on campus in order to identify areas for increased efficiency and maximum utilization. A recent Space Utilization Study developed recommendations regarding the optimal management of space for the university in light of anticipated growth. Effective space management will require a shift in how the campus community thinks about space. Adjusting to a campus-wide view of space will unearth critical changes to be made; some of which may be difficult. However, this shift will serve to strengthen the foundation of the overall campus, moving UCR forward on the path to preeminence.
