The request for strategic and academic components was FEATURED IN2007 Architectural PortfolioSUB CATEGORYCampus Master Planning and allowed the project team to draw upon planning and public involvement expertise for both educational facilities and public works. Team members are skilled in principles of continuous improvement, which they applied to development of the annual improvement plan as a key component of the academic master plan.
