Associate Vice President, Capital Planning, Design, and Construction
The University of Kentucky (UK) is continuing to build, transform and grow its campus into a thriving, residential research campus -- one poised to serve those students, scholars and staff today; one that is ready to serve the needs of the state and world tomorrow. To do this -- to create the best possible environment for the UK community's success -- the institution has invested, and largely self-financed, over $2.5 billion in a campus transformation, with new residence halls and classrooms, research facilities, dining facilities and athletic venues. UK is one of only eight institutions in the country with the full complement of liberal arts, engineering, professional, agricultural and medical colleges and disciplines on one contiguous campus.
The Associate Vice President, Capital Planning, Design, and Construction is an essential position to our campus growth and transformation, and will provide administrative and leadership direction to all functional areas in support of capital planning, design, and construction project management.

Significant experience with development of capital budgets, workflows, policies, procedures, organized record keeping, assessment, benchmarking and systems for the efficient allocation of resources will be key for success in the role.

In addition, the AVP participates in the Periodic Campus Master Plan and precinct plan updates and is responsible, along with the Vice President for Facilities Management and Chief Facilities Officer, in planning and producing the biennium and 6-year capital request for University Administration.
