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.

And Whereas:
            The faculty, students and staff are essential stakeholders in the Institute’s educational and research functions.

And Whereas:
           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.

And Whereas:
            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.
