The University of Iowa will begin planning the next 10 years of facilities construction and upgrades, creating much-needed academic space at the core of campus and modernizing the delivery of education and patient care to Iowans.

“This is an exciting opportunity to modernize and care for nearly every corner of campus that will establish the University of Iowa as a destination for students, faculty, staff, and patients well into the future,” says Rod Lehnertz, senior vice president for finance and operations.

Lehnertz and UI Hospitals & Clinics CEO Suresh Gunasekaran presented a preliminary draft of the UI’s 10-year facilities master plan to the Board of Regents, State of Iowa, on Wednesday, Jan. 12, as the university sought the board’s approval to proceed with planning the extensive revitalization of campus.
