A brief description of how the physical campus plan or amendment includes sustainability:

The Campus Master Plan for 2005-2015, is the foundation for University of Florida facilities and land resources for the next ten years and beyond. The Campus Master Plan outlines policies for responsible stewardship of land resources and sustainable development that support the university’s mission. Campus planning in Florida’s State University System is governed by Chapter 1013.30, Florida Statutes and the University’s own Operating Memorandum that further describes the plan development and adoption process consistent with state statute. For the 2005-2015 Campus Master Plan, the University utilized an inclusive and comprehensive planning approach that went well beyond these minimum requirements to engage the campus community, host community and governmental agencies in the plan development process. The resulting plan includes policies that address sustainability in nearly every aspect including land use, urban design, natural resource protection, green building, transportation, historic and cultural resource protection, landscaping and irrigation, stormwater, utilities, and academic teaching and research. The Campus Master Plan is updated every five years, and will continue to expand the university’s commitment to sustainability with each evolution of the plan.
