The purpose of the academic, administrative, residential, auxiliary and athletic working groups is to provide information about programmatic needs including amount and type of space needed or desired and preferred adjacencies or compatibilities. These working groups would not develop preferred sites. The purpose of the architectural, utilities, land use and transportation working groups is to provide such information as guidelines, restrictions, capabilities and other needs to support the campus. The architects would meet with all working groups to gather data and other relevant information. Working groups may add members as needed.
