Master Planning

The goal of the Campus Master Plan is to create a quality campus setting that reflects the stature of the University’s mission of teaching, research, and public service. The Master Plan is to serve as a directive for define program needs, historical implications, program locations, utility systems, circulation, parking, green spaces and building/landscape guidelines.

The Master Plan establishes a basis for coordinating cost effective physical development decisions to improve the campus quality of life, simplify and enhance the campus organization, establish a positive unified campus identity, improve operational efficiency and identify flexible strategies for accommodating growth.

The master planning process results in an executive summary report and master plan report including written and graphic illustrations of recommended systems, program accommodations and design guidelines.

The Campus Master Plans are developed and maintained collaboratively between each campus and OCP&RES.
