On January 1, 2016, former Rutgers University president, Robert L. Barchi created a new division bringing together planning and transportation, facilities operations and construction, public safety and emergency management, and the majority of the university's auxiliary enterprises.

Institutional Planning and Operations was developed to create universitywide efficiencies in service delivery and optimal effectiveness in resource utilization, benefiting the university community. 

Antonio Calcado, Executive Vice President for Strategic Planning and Operations and Chief Operating Officer heads this vital division.  This division oversees the university’s continued physical growth, its security, and its transportation services all of which are evolving rapidly to meet the demands of a technology-enhanced world.
