Chief Planning Office
David S. Okada serves as the Chief Planning Officer and interim Chief of Staff under President Krise. The Chief Planning Office also manages the Physical Master Plan of the University.
The UOG Vision 2025 Physical Master Plan (PMP), updated on December 6, 2017, is one of the major components developed in support of the Institutional Strategic Plan.
The Update outlines the framework for the main campus and addresses building uses and space needs; transportation and parking; land use; landscape master planning; and project priorities. It also incorporates sustainable principles and targets UOG at a Silver LEED level for the campus. The PMP Update is comprised of eight design modules based on the planning principles, project priorities, and general construction sequencing.
The University of Guam participates in the Civilian Military Task Force (CMTF) which was created by Gov. Felix Camacho through Exec. Order No. 2006-10 and is comprised of members from the education community, Government of Guam, military, business community, civic organizations, and the public.
The primary purpose of the taskforce is to identify issues and concerns that affect the overall needs of the island in anticipation of the military expansion. There are 11 sub-committees.
The University of Guam chairs the Sub-committee on Education and its mission is to document and benchmark, review, assess, and develop recommendations that support the goal of maintaining quality, accessible education island-wide (public, private, and Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA)) at all levels from kindergarten through grade level 18 (K-18) as planned military growth and island-wide population growth occur.
