Facilities & Operations
Welcome to Facilities Planning & Operations
Rowan University's ambitious plans include doubling enrollment to 25,000 students by 2023. To reach that goal, the university will construct several facilities, including new buildings for the Colleges of Business and Engineering, a housing village, a health sciences facility and an academic building to serve the entire university. These projects, more than $300 million worth of construction over the next eight years, will generate much needed construction jobs in the short-term and increase access to higher education in the long-term. Donald Moore, Senior Vice President of Facilities Planning and Operations will provide an update on each of the projects and explain how businesses can partner with Rowan on these important initiatives.
