Campus Committees

UC San Diego relies on a number of planning processes that actively engage faculty, students and staff on a variety of committees.

Standing Committees

  • Campus/Community Planning Committee (CCPC) – advises the Chancellor on issues pertaining to the physical development of the campus. (See meeting information.) Its actions are informed by two subcommittees:
  • Design Review Board – In conformance with UC Regents policy, this group advises the Chancellor on facility design and landscaping guidelines, and the designs of new buildings and major landscape projects to ensure consistency with applicable planning guidelines. Membership includes:
    • Three architects from the private sector
    • One landscape architect from the private sector
    • Academic and administrative co-chairs of the Campus/Community Planning Committee
    • An at-large representative of the Academic Senate
    • The Vice Chancellor of Resource Management & Planning.

Ad Hoc Committees

Planning Advisory Committees

A committee of faculty, students, administrative leaders and senior planning and design staff oversees the preparation of campus-wide or neighborhood-level physical plans. These studies:

  • Identify sites for new academic, administrative, housing, recreation, parking and support facilities
  • Define vehicular and pedestrian circulation improvements
  • Develop design guidelines that define neighborhood site characteristics and building attributes
  • Provide phasing plans to enable orderly growth

Building Advisory Committees

A committee of faculty, students, administrative leaders and senior planning and design staff oversees programmatic and design input for each major building and landscaping project. These committees work closely with the appointed design professionals to ensure that each project meets predefined program goals and design objectives.

The Capital Planning, Campus Architect & Planning, Facilities Management and Campus Planning units collaborate to complete required project documents, including project description and justification analyses, environmental impact assessments, site plans, design documents, construction schedule and a budget. Other campus consultants from Environment, Health & Safety, Information Technology Services, etc., also provide technical assistance and advice to Building Advisory Committees.
