Results of the Capital Improvement Planning Process at Nova Southeastern University: 2000 to 2005. Research and Planning Report.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This paper presents results of the first Capital Improvement Planning process at Nova Southeastern University (Florida) encompassing the years 2000 to 2005. The University established a committee to guide the development of the Capital Improvement Plan, and personnel from the University's Office of Research and Planning worked with the various academic centers to prepare and collect data from the capital improvement worksheets. A comprehensive set of tables was then developed to provide the plan for the whole University. Overall, it is projected that the University will experience substantial increases in capital infrastructure from 2000 to 2005. It is expected that enrollment will increase by 18% during this period, and that number of full-time faculty members will increase by 17%. Part-time faculty numbers are projected to increase by 21%, and a 21% increase is also projected for full-time staff. Space (1,000 square feet)) is projected to increase by 40%, and the estimated cost of this increased space is approximately $114 million. To support this growth in a sustained and prudent manner, the University must remain mindful of these projections, especially as costs for 3 new buildings have already reached $79 million.
