Committees

Construction and renovation projects are governed by four committees and design guidance is provided by the Architectural Review Council.

Architectural Review Council

Meets Monthly

The Architectural Review Council is comprised of faculty from the UF College of Design, Construction and Planning (DCP), staff from the UF Department of Planning, Design and Construction (PDC), as well as local architectural alumni and practicing architects. The Council serves in an advisory capacity to the Faculty Senate Land Use Committee and provides the professional expertise needed by Land Use to fully evaluate the work submitted by our professional consultants. Rather than dictate design, the ARC will guide the design process by asking the right questions, and will lead our consultants, as well as the greater University community, to a deeper understanding of the role of architecture on campus.
