FMD is responsible for the planning, design, construction, maintenance and repair of university facilities and grounds, and consists of 11 critical and interdependent support teams:


Campus Planning

Campus Planning initiates and develops projects, plans and studies needed to create the physical space required to implement CSUMB’s academic mission. Staff regularly collaborate with campus and community stakeholders in order to redevelop the campus and the former Fort Ord into a vibrant and thriving community. Fundamental to our work is the integration of the three tenets of sustainability, identified by the campus as they relate to physical space as: placemaking, stewardship and partnership.
