2004 Update of the Campus Master Plan

2004 Maps      Campus Master Plan

bullet Master Planning for university campuses is not a new process.   The 1903 and 1906 plans generated by E. W. Arnold for the first Western Normal School buildings on Prospect Hill were essentially master plans.  The most critical feature of any successful master plan, however, is whether it is reviewed and updated in a timely fashion, allowing the institution to both anticipate and respond to change.

bullet The generally accepted planning standard is to formally review and update master plans in five to ten year intervals.  Informal planning exercises happen frequently in the meantime, but the periodic formal documentation is critical to maintaining the structure of long-term physical planning and fulfilling the institution's mission.
