The Physical Plant's mission is
to efficiently operate, maintain, and improve the physical plant facilities
in support of the programs of the college by providing a safe, clean, healthy,
and attractive environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
The Physical Plant Department which consists
of more than 100 employees, is responsible for the operation and maintenance
of 16 buildings on a 121 acre campus.
