Welcome to “R” Plan! UCR is embarking on a new Long Range Development Plan (LRDP) to guide campus planning through 2035. Think of the LRDP as UCR’s general planning framework- it designates campus areas for certain types of uses, identifies growth goals, and provides direction for future development. Its an important planning tool requiring time, expertise, and collaboration!
Planning for the Future
UCR has a history of visionary planning. Since its foundation as the Citrus Experiment Station, the campus has been home to big ideas and aspirations for growth, excellence and leadership. Today, this tradition of looking to the future continues as the campus embarks on its effort to develop a new LRDP. The LRDP is a strategic examination of where the campus is today, and a collaborative visioning process to determine what the UCR of the future will be. Of course, such a significant effort will require many hands; students, staff, faculty and the Riverside community will have many opportunities along the way to participate in a variety of ways. The ultimate success of the LRDP truly depends on the sharing of knowledge, experience and vision. In this strategic and collaborative way, the campus will build on its history to create a cohesive vision for the future, and identify the necessary steps to make its vision reality.
