"Everything that we touch, feel, or smell — our whole physical environment — has an impact on our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. So, if we want students, staff, and faculty to be in an environment that inspires them, then that’s where you need to translate your focused attention.”
Mark Goudsblom is Associate Vice President, Campus Planning and Facilities Management. He oversees campus planning, UFV's project office, facilities management, and the Office of Sustainability. Together, his team is responsible for the sustainable development, operation, and maintenance of UFV's campuses.
UFV is shaping a campus for the 21st century: one that engages students, builds community, and meets ambitious goals for environmental sustainability. When you explore our list of capital projects, you’ll see exciting initiatives. Spaces are being redesigned for social and creative interaction, bringing life and lectures together. Digital capability is a critical component of every project: we want high-tech campuses that enhance learning and work for everyone. And, each project incorporates the newest standards for energy management, making our campus more resilient and contributing to decreased energy use and operating costs.
