UC San Diego. Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities Management Historical Files, 1955-1982 (RSS 4011)

Extent: 1.05 Linear feet (3 archives boxes)

The Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities Management historical files document campus development, building siting, and facility construction planning from 1955-1982.

Established in 1964, the Facilities Management Office was charged with maintaining campus structures. It was organized under the Office of Architects and Engineers, the entity of responsibility for the overall coordination of the campus building program, and was supervised by the Chancellor. Shortly thereafter, the Office moved under the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance. By the 1970s, the role was expanded into the Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities Management, under the direction of the Vice Chancellor for Administration. Today, the Facilities Management office is a service unit under the Vice Chancellor for Resource Management and Planning.

The Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities Management historical files document campus development, building siting, and facility construction planning from 1955-1982. The material documents the planning for early campus expansion, including site selection, long range development planning, building and road construction, and university/community discussions.
