510.5 Interior Design Statement
I expect that there will be many renovation and building projects during my presidency. The following principles will guide us as we make decisions about design and decorating.
- The Architectural Design Statement, which was approved as part of the 1990 Campus Master Plan, will guide decisions.
- The management of interior decorating will be centralized in the business office.
- The VP for Finance will use the professional services of an architect when an architect is working on a job.
- The VP for Finance will consult with a design professional if an architect is not working on the job or if the unit or department is not willing to accept the architect’s proposal.
- The VP for Finance will consult with the provost if an acceptable palette is not found which meets the institutional priorities and is acceptable to the department.
- The colors and products will be chosen to keep maintenance and custodial costs as minimal as possible while maintaining an environment on campus, which is professional yet not monolithic or monotonous.
- The persons affected in the decision-making process will be consulted. The institution is committed to continuity and congruency of colors and products within departments and the department chair of the affected department shall ultimately determine whether the proposed color scheme and products are acceptable to the department or if further work needs to be completed.
