Beyond Compliance Working Group

The Beyond Compliance working group is charged with increasing faculty engagement and participation in shifting the culture and policy around sexual violence and sexual harassment on campus. The emphasis on faculty engagement distinguishishes this committee from the general work of the Coordinated Campus Response Team, the Title IX and CARE offices, resource centers, and others committed to this work although it works in collaboration and coalition with these groups.

Student Housing West Student Advisory Council
To ensure we remain focused on the UCSC student experience as we progress through the Student Housing West (SHW) development process, we are creating a Student Advisory Council for the project. This group of student leaders will provide feedback and act as the voice of the student body while we proceed through the design, construction and operational planning of the new SHW community.

The UCSC students embody the unique characteristics of the UCSC campus culture, and represent the most reliable source of information about the current on-campus residential experience.  With this in mind, a student advisory council is essential to maintaining the unique and desirable elements of the campus culture and student experience. Through this advisory model Capstone Development Partners and the University aim to engage students during various phases of the project to hear feedback, answer questions, and incorporate ideas for the project when and where feasible.

Areas of interest for which student feedback and discussion is important include:

  • Provide feedback on the unique considerations in the design of these new living-learning communities.

  • Discuss the project’s approach to sustainability and identify opportunities for integrated learning experiences through design, construction and operational phases of the project.

  • Brainstorm how to foster the strongest sense of community and how facility design impacts this.

  • Discuss how to integrate the elements of the residential college experience that students value the most.
  • Consider thematic residential cluster areas conducive to the needs and desires of upper division undergraduates.
  • Generate innovative ideas and options that enhance safety, security, facilities operations, and fixtures and furnishings.
  • Consider best options for amenity areas including social, dining, recreational and study spaces.
  • Identify issues of special concern and advise the development team regarding how best to address these concerns through the design process.
  • Provide feedback on plans for innovative use of technology throughout the community.
  • Discuss ideas on how SHW can best connect residents with adjacent residential communities and the campus at large.
  • Provide student-focused outreach and communications for the new SHW community.

Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) Planning Committee:

Meeting once a month for 1-1.5 hours, time commitment may increase. 
A Long-Range Development Plan is defined as "a physical development and land use plan to meet the academic and institutional objectives for a particular campus or medical center of higher education. It is updated periodically to meet changing needs and conditions. This process ensures that campus development supports academic, research, and public service goals, while also responding to UC systemwide policies and projected enrollment demand. The LRDP does not constitute a mandate for growth, nor is it a detailed implementation plan for development. It does not commit the campus to carrying out development on any given timeline.
