The Campus Master Plan process was restarted in March 2022 after a two-year hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the coming months, workshops, visioning and plan development will continue, with anticipated completion of the plan in December 2022. When the plan was put on hold, the process was approximately 75% complete. We had involved over 1,000 individuals through five workshops, eighteen focus group meetings, three neighborhood meetings and one campus open house. The pandemic may have created new campus planning issues, and the consultant team is interested in engaging with campus to discuss this topic, as well as validating previous assumptions.


Master Plan Draft Development

The master plan process is nearing completion and development of the Draft plan is underway. This document will be available for review and comment in early 2023.

The Main Campus planning effort was restarted on April 22, 2022, with a meeting of the Executive Steering Committee. This committee will guide the plan’s development with the consultant team of Ayers Saint Gross, seeking direction and consensus on overarching planning topics including Strategic Plan alignment and physical planning.
The University is also developing a new master plan for the Sierra Vista Campus. This planning effort was started in March 2020 and will align the campus with the 4th Industrial Revolution and future-focused work of the College of Applied Science & Technology (CAST) and its regional partners.
The growth trajectory of CAST is likely to exceed the capacity of the current facilities in the next few years, so the need for new facilities and overall campus improvements, coupled with the high potential for significant research activity in the region, make this planning effort a priority for the campus.
