“Taking care of what we have” is the system’s top priority, said Brian Yolitz, associate vice chancellor for facilities.

Trustee Philip Krinkie questioned why, given that a fifth of the system’s enrollment is in online courses, “we’re building new buildings when we have a crying need to try to maintain … our existing facilities.”

But Rosenstone defended the request’s breakdown as “disciplined.” About 17.9 percent of its square footage would go toward new facilities. New buildings are focused on high-demand fields aided by in-person instruction, he said. The system’s total square footage would decrease, the request says, after subtracting what would be demolished.
