The 2010 Campus Master Plan is being updated to re-envision a comprehensive campus plan to support the implementation of the University’s strategic plan, Shaping What's Next. The Master Plan will determine needs and guide development of the physical elements of campus including facilities, space, transportation, parking, housing, utilities, infrastructure, and the outdoor environment for the next decade, through 2035. The Campus Master Plan will result in a comprehensive 10-year development plan that integrates the University’s goals for academic excellence, research, diversity, equity, and inclusion, student experience, community programs and engagement, talent and workforce cultivation and sustainability.
