Mission, Vision & Goals

Facilities Management provides many services essential to the functionality of the university in support of the academic mission of California State University, Fresno. These services include planning and construction management, utilities and energy management, environmental health and safety, risk management, sustainability, and maintenance of all buildings and grounds.

Taking advantage of Fresno State's unique setting, the campus has created beautiful landscaping, earning formal status as an arboretum. To help ease the effects of the region's hot summers, several thousand mature trees, of more than 100 different varieties, cover most of the campus. Autumn colors draw thousands of visitors to the campus's walking tours. Extensive rose collections, formal gardens and a "sneezeless" garden of low-allergen-producing plants can also be found on the campus.

Facilities Management strives to create an inviting atmosphere in which students experience personal growth and academic learning in a dynamic environment as our valley continues to be the fastest growing region in the state of California. A natural result of this growth is the continual need for the addition of new facilities on the Fresno State campus and the need for improvements and maintenance to existing facilities as the campus ages. Facilities Management is challenged to use new methods and new technologies to manage these demands.

Our vision is to take advantage of this growth to provide the necessary facilities to improve the operational infrastructure needed to enhance instruction, to support the academic, cultural, environmental and physical aspects of the campus, and to meet the demands of the faculty, students and families for a higher level of service and value for their educational dollars.
