Subject: Campus Design Guidelines

I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the members of the Campus Design Subcommittee for their excellent work. San José State University now has a set of guidelines that will inform all future construction and renovation on our campus.

The intent of these guidelines is to develop a continuity and focus that will, in effect, reestablish the original character of the campus, something that has been lost over the years. We now have the potential to develop a unified and architecturally significant space that will help define San José State University.

Therefore, I ask all those who provide design services for the University to implement these guidelines.
