| The Cornell University campus is widely admired as one of the world's most beautiful academic settings. The Division of Infrastructure Properties and Planning is committed to providing the highest quality service to faculty, students, staff, alumni and visitors.|
With more than 260 major buildings enhancing the magnificent landscape of the Ithaca campus, approximately 1,000 highly talented and dedicated staff serve as steward of the campus resources and operations.
All employees are accountable for supporting the organization's values of truth, respect, excellence, teamwork, and integrity; and supporting inclusive and sustainable practices in carrying out everyday responsibilities.

As a key steward of the University's facilities, FM is responsible for facility assessments, skilled trades, general construction, building care, grounds, recycling, asbestos, and the management of planned, corrective, and preventive maintenance.

- Life safety,
- Intellectual property, including research support,
- Facilities degradation, and

They will insure consistency of this process throughout all areas of campus; and be able to effectively communicate to stakeholders how, and why, decisions were made.
The MP will serve as project manager for certain types of projects and are expected to meet CU certification requirements and follow all CU project management protocols and processes. They will fully develop projects for maintenance work and provide oversight and act as liaison for all projects within their buildings regardless of funding source.
The MP will create and maintain relationships with all the zone maintenance personnel and Campus Manager. They will be a resource for their zone organization to: understand complex issues, help guide the options and decisions for completing work, and provide back-up for the ZFMs (zone facilities managers) and ZFDs (zone facilities directors).
