RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) – UC Riverside yesterday issued a request for proposals [RFP] for a consultant to assist the campus in creating a new Physical Master Plan Study to guide responsible and sustainable campus development to the year 2025 and beyond.

The study will be used to assist campus leadership in meeting the key goals of the university’s strategic plan, UCR 2020.

UCR’s strategic plan currently calls for increasing enrollment from 22,000 to 25,000 students by 2020.  In addition, the campus is considering adding as many as 5,000 additional new students by 2025 for a total student population of 30,000.

The campus also plans to grow its core faculty by 300 new ladder-rank scholars by 2020 from the current 650 and provide several new facilities to serve teaching, research, and other institutional needs.

The study also is needed to guide implementation of the UC-wide goal of becoming carbon-neutral in its operations by 2025.  In addition, new state stormwater regulations will require UCR to actively manage new stormwater runoff onsite.

Under the RFP, interested parties are asked to submit qualifications and proposals to the University by August, 12, 2014.   Here is a link to the RFP solicitation:

The study is anticipated to be completed by late 2015, after which a new UCR Long-Range Development Plan (LRDP) and related environmental approvals will be undertaken.  While the study is underway, UCR will continue to advance priority projects, in accordance with the UCR LRDP of 2005, with amendments, as necessary, and subject to any required public review.

UCR is committed to soliciting input from the public as well as local and state government entities and private concerns during the process.  For more information, please visit: http://cpp.ucr.edu/masterplan_study/
