Campus Facilities Master Plan

 

The College is engaging in Campus Master Planning as part of its comprehensive Strategic Planning Process.

We are envisioning together an environment in which our learnings (The Future Series), our passions (Needs Statement Process), and our purpose as a public liberal arts college will be nurtured.

The new Master Plan, which will align physical campus and space to our Strategic Plan and Mission Statement will accomplish the following:

  • provide a focused vision that will address physical needs for the next 10 years, and
  • emphasize an enhanced student experience, value-based growth, and maximizing efficiencies with existing buildings, infrastructure and operations.
