Office of Space Management


The OSM is responsible for coordinating the University's space management processes. Working with members from every University area, we develop and implement policies and procedures to address space issues in harmony with the goals of the University's strategic plan. Through the collection of space data, the analysis of that data, and development of alternatives for dealing with space issues, the OSM will provide the support needed for administrative decisions for changes to improve the built environment.
