Mobility and Transportation Standing Committee


As the university works toward the MoveVU vision for campus by reducing drive alone rates, lowering carbon emissions, creating a more connected, sustainable campus and providing more diverse parking options, making careful, deliberate decisions about parking and transportation will be instrumental in achieving our goals. In addition, investing in infrastructure that supports sustainable transportation and engaging in research and data collection will be critical as well.

The Mobility and Transportation Committee is composed of a diverse group of campus stakeholders that will act in an advisory capacity to guide efforts surrounding parking and transportation on campus. The main goals of the Mobility and Transportation Committee are 1) to discern diverse perspectives about mobility and transportation that help implement the overall vision and goals for the future of campus, specifically FutureVU and MoveVU, 2) to review general strategies and policies concerning university parking, mobility and transportation programs, and 3) to provide feedback on and disseminate information regarding parking and transportation programs to their constituents and colleagues.
