Resolution for Presentation to the MIT Faculty: "Establish a Campus Planning Committee"
September 4, 2013
MIT’s Charles River campus with its buildings, open spaces, and landscape is an essential component of the Institute’s educational and research environment.
The faculty, students and staff are essential stakeholders in the Institute’s educational and research functions.
The rapid economic development in the Kendall area, increased scarcity of available land, and increase in real estate costs, calls for very careful long-term campus planning to ensure the availability of space to support future academic needs of MIT.
Critical decisions affecting the future of the campus should be made with the fully considered input of the above stakeholders.
A Campus Planning Committee composed of a majority of faculty members elected by the faculty, together with student, staff and administration representatives, shall be established as a Standing Committee of the Institute, prior to the end of the fall 2013 semester.
