Facilities Management Emphasis, Construction Management
Thank you for being a dedicated student at Weber State University!
We are terminating the Facilities Management concentration and minor programs. The number of students declared in this program has shrunk to the point where it is not possible to run it effectively. We will retain the Facilities Management Certificate of Proficiency in some form to be determined.
Realizing that this could affect your intentions, we will endeavor to get you all through the program by offering the FM classes you need or, potentially, in some cases, options in lieu of those classes. We will target Spring Semester, 2024 as the last semester for FM specific courses. As of now, we will not accept any new students into the program and will be tapering off course offerings as you and others move through the program.
Your academic advisor can help you navigate this change. Please contact your College of Engineering, Applied Science & Technology advisor (Tanya Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
I want to emphasize that we will do our best to get you to completion. I’m sorry for having to burden you with this news and for the impact it could have on your plans.
