Campus Committees

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

Campus/Community Planning Committee

The Campus/Community Planning Committee (CCPC) advises the chancellor on issues pertaining to the campus' physical development. Its actions are informed by the Open Space Committee (OSC) for public realm projects. See CCPC meeting information.

Design Review Board

In conformance with UC Regents policy, the Design Review Board (DRB) advises the Chancellor on facility design and landscape guidelines, and the designs of new buildings and major landscape projects to ensure consistency with applicable planning guidelines. The DRB is overseen by Capital Program Management (CPM). Contact Dennis Brown if you have any DRB-related questions. 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 Operations Management & Capital Programs.

Planning Advisory Groups

A group 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

Project Working Groups

A working group consisting of faculty, students, administrative leaders and senior planning and design staff is charged with advising administration on the planning and design for major building and landscaping projects. See the Project Working Groups.
