Committees which report to the Provost: Campus Development Advisory Committee (CDAC)

The Campus Development Advisory Committee (CDAC) advises the UNM administration on issues relating to the physical environment of the campus as they contribute to and affect the mission, goals and quality of life at the University. The CDAC serves as a forum for the communication and exchange of ideas and proposals regarding development on the campus and its impact on the campus community, the surrounding neighborhoods, and the City of Albuquerque.

The intent of the committee’s involvement is to carry out reviews of proposed projects, and to offer recommendations directly to the administrative group managing the projects as well as serving as an advisory body to the Provost and Faculty Senate.
