The Office of the Provost is responsible for capital planning of General Fund buildings on the Ann Arbor campus.

Decisions on renovating, replacing and adding buildings are complex and on-going and involve balancing both unit and University priorities with available resources. To promote strategic building use and growth on the Ann Arbor campus, the Office of the Provost ensures that:

  • Existing General Fund facilities are used efficiently
  • The need for new or expanded facilities aligns with the University’s academic and research mission and overall institutional priorities.
