The campus is growing with a focus on sustainability. UMass is in the midst of a ten-year, billion-dollar capital improvement program that started in 2004. Since the 1993 plan the campus has added one and a half million gsf of new buildings, while funding has been below the level necessary to maintain the existing physical plant. As a result, the University is struggling with a $2 billion backlog of deferred modernization.
