On Tuesday, November 7, 2017 a Call for Research Space Proposals were published inviting UC Merced By Law Units, ORU's and faculty research clusters to submit a proposal for space. By the deadline at the end of November, the Office of Space Planning and Analysis received 35 space proposals. Additionally, several administrative departments elected to submit a space proposal. All of these space proposals are available for viewing.
Over the next three months, the details of the space proposals will be verified, University priorities confirmed and space allocation soultions developed. Several alternative space allocation scenarios will be published in mid Spring 2018 and general feedback will be solicited prior to the formal allocation of the 2020 Project and Backfill space.
Should you have any questions about any of the proposals, the proposal process and/or the space allocation scenario development process, please contact Maggie Saunders, Director of Space Planning and Analysis.
