The 2020 Project and Backfill Space Allocation Plan was developed in 2018 to delineate how the 2020 Project Space, and the space vacated to fill the 2020 Project space, would be assigned. THe plan was predicated on several guiding assumptions:
Faculty at Castle have priority to return to campus.
Faculty with lab space not conducive to their research have priority to move to new facilities.
Growth and buffer space are critical to the sustainability of the university.
Proximity of departments should enable research synergies wherever possible.
Strategic Centers of Excellence are critical to advance the research mission of UC Merced.
