Historical Note

The Physical Plant reported to the Secretary of the Board of Trustees from its inception in 1944 through 1959, at which time authority over its operations was transferred to the Vice President for Finance and Operations and Treasurer. It has also been known as the Buildings and Utilities Division. Physical Plant's name was changed to Infrastructure Planning and Facilities.
