The MPRT meets monthly and is comprised of staff and faculty from Facilities Services, Campus Planning & Design, the Bay Campus, the Provost's Office, Student Affairs, Administration, Planning Services and the President's Office, as well as other representatives from the faculty, staff, RIPTA, and the South Kingstown community. The Committee's essential role is to keep the Campus Master Plan in the forefront of new construction projects and to ensure that those projects meet the major philosophical guiding principles of the Plan for the future physical development of the campus. The Committee reviews new projects and designs and makes necessary recommendations that guide new building and grounds projects as they move forward. Communication and input between this committee and the members of the SBPC and the President is essential.
The Campus Master Plan emphasizes the future physical development of the University of Rhode Island. It provides design guidelines and policies for current and future development of the University's building, grounds and infrastructure. The Plan ensures consistent standards for landscape elements that are needed to create a more inviting, unified, and aesthetically pleasing campus. The plan incorporates gateways to the University, traffic flow and transportation corridors.
