University of Arizona: Historic Preservation Plan

The University of Arizona was founded in 1885 as the state’s only land grant institution. In the 1980s, the University of Arizona became one of the first land grant campuses listed on the National Register of Historic Places. ARG worked with the University of Arizona on a Getty Campus Heritage Grant-funded project to develop an illustrated Historic Preservation Plan and Maintenance Manuals for the campus’ cultural resources. Based on an outline developed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Historic Preservation Plan lays out a clear direction for on-campus preservation activities through goals and strategies informed by staff input and public workshops. The Maintenance Manuals offer guidance to the University’s in-house staff with regard to the upgrade, preventative maintenance, and rehabilitation of historic buildings and landscape features.
