The new Capital Facilities Improvement Project Request Form process is now in place. Any and all projects (which exceed $5,000) should be identified through this process, and NOT the Maintenance /Custodial Request Form process. Thank you.

We also have a new process in place for furniture purchases. As part of this process, we have identified a storage area in the Ice Center for all used (replaced) furniture. We will develop a furniture inventory and make that available campus wide.

CALICE ADVANCED MANUFACTURING CENTER

The Grand Opening/Ribbon Cutting was held on October 16, 2018, and was a tremendous success; many very positive comments were received and there was much community support. Thank you to the Foundation, MarCom, Facilities and all other involved staff in making the event so successful.
