As a public land-grant research university with 40,000+ students, this plan complements the University’s renewed Strategic Plan, and provides an overarching planning framework for campus development through 2036, comprising principles, goals and strategies that address land use, landscape and open space, mobility, and infrastructure. To draw the widest possible group of participants and ensure inclusivity, the planning process combined traditional engagement tools such as meetings and workshops with more non-traditional tools such as a designated website and an online survey available to the public to solicit feedback about the campus. The plan responds to the University’s evolving conditions and priorities by: increasing investment in research and instructional space for new pedagogies, technologies, and interdisciplinary connections; addressing the shortage of student and faculty housing; acknowledging the increasing effects of climate change by creating a more sustainable and resilient campus; and expanding the amount of student extracurricular space to enhance student success.
