Development of the 10-Year Strategic Capital Plan for Oregon Public Universities
The Higher Education Coordinating Commission is in the process of developing a 10-year strategic capital plan for public universities, in partnership with the public universities and an external expert in educational strategic capital planning. This project will provide a target public university capital portfolio through 2029 and will be used to guide Commission in prioritization of capital projects and recommendations to the Governor and the Legislature on the critically important need for strategically driven capital investments for years to come.

The 10-year strategic capital plan will be a high-level summary of capital need based on demographic, economic, industry, and other environmental factors, dividing the targeted portfolio by region of the state. It will divide the existing and potential future capital portfolio according to ideal usage and utilization, estimating space need for different academic disciplines and functions. Staff anticipates the initial phase of work to be completed by the end of September 2019, and the HECC will first use the final deliverable and the data and analysis behind it to guide its prioritization of public university capital requests for the 2020 Legislative Session.
