Planning, Development, and Design

Planning, Development, and Design

Under the direction of vice president and University Architect David C. Schulz, AIA, Planning, Development, and Design, a department within Institutional Planning and Operations,  integrates the areas of planning, development, real estate, design, space management, and design and construction technology to promote a more holistic approach to planning at Rutgers University. The overall goal is to balance efficient programming with thoughtful design to create an evolving, safe, functional, and inviting environment that advances the university's institutional mission.  

In addition to leading the department, the Office of the Vice President and University Architect qualifies professional architectural and engineering consultants, administers the Request for Proposal process to procure professional architectural/engineering and related technical services, and holds signature authority for all architectural and engineering projects.
