The University of Wisconsin-Madison, the flagship campus of the University of Wisconsin System, is recognized internationally for its rigorous academics, ground-breaking research, and commitment to public service. Since its founding as a land-grant university in 1848, UW–Madison has been a catalyst for innovation and discovery.
From the labs where Vitamin A and B were discovered and classrooms where the next generation of leaders are inspired, to the 50-yard line in Camp Randall Stadium and the campus shoreline along beautiful Lake Mendota, the university’s physical environment helps define what it means to be a Badger.
UW–Madison is looking for an experienced and forward-thinking leader to guide the next era of Facilities Planning & Management (FP&M) on campus. The Associate Vice Chancellor for FP&M leads one of the largest and most diverse divisions on campus. FP&M’s staff of 1,200 employees include trades, service, support, and professional staff.
The Associate Vice Chancellor oversees the 938-acre campus located in the heart of the state capital, with more than 9,500 acres of off-campus property. On the main campus, there are 420 buildings containing more than 17 million assignable square feet (ASF) of academic and research space and over 25 million total gross square feet (GSF). More than 120 of these buildings house major instructional and research facilities.
In support of the university’s core mission, FP&M provides community-focused, campus-wide services that support and inspire excellence. FP&M leads campus planning, coordinates design and construction, maintains and operates buildings and grounds, supplies utility services, provides healthy and safe work environments, accelerates sustainability and resilience, and directs parking and transportation services. The division also works closely with the University of Wisconsin System and Wisconsin Department of Administration in many of its functions.
The next Associate Vice Chancellor for FP&M has a unique opportunity to leave a lasting mark on UW–Madison, shaping the physical environment that allows new ideas to come to life.
