Administrative history

The Office of Physical Plant was established in 1967 to assume the responsibilities of engineering, maintenance, and planning of buildings and grounds on the University campus. Previously, these had been the responsibility of the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds. In 1969, the Office of Physical Plant was organized into four divisions: Operations and Maintenance, Design and Planning, New Construction, and Administrative Services. In 1986, the Office of Physical Plant was further reorganized into two departments: Plant Operations and Plant Design and Construction. This department was renamed Campus Planning and Development in 1989 and again renamed Campus and Community Planning in late 2001.

Custodial history
