Historic Preservation

Sibley Dome

The OUA provides stewardship for the preservation of the historic architectural assets of the University. OUA meets regularly with the Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Committee to present and review work related to locally landmarked buildings. OUA reviews any impact to buildings registered as historically designated places with the State Historic Preservation Office. Applying the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Treatment of Historic Properties, the OUA works closely with Architecture firms with a strength in historic preservation to document and maintain the historic structures that span a breadth of architectural styles and give a rich character to the Cornell campus.
