WHAT IS THE Long Range Development Plan (LRDP)??

The 2005-2020 Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) will plan for number of students enrolled, number of faculty and programs, transportation systems, land use, housing & student life, community relations, infrastructure & technology, and impacts to the social, built and natural environments. Once every fifteen years our campus redefines its vision, academic priorities, and physical development strategy through a Long Range Development Plan (LRDP). This is YOUR CHANCE TO DECIDE THE FUTURE OF OUR CAMPUS. The LRDP will firmly impact everything (physical, academic & social) about UCSC and our Community.
