Document Description
The proposed project consists of the adoption of an updated Campus Master Plan. The existing Campus Master Plan was adopted in 1991. The proposed Campus Master Plan 2004 provides for five new major academic buildings, two recreational facilities, a natural history museum, a child care center, approximately 1,300 bed-spaces of student housing, two parking structures, and improvements to the Agricultural Teaching and Research Center (ATRC) located approximately 2 miles from the main campus. The Plan calls for the demolition of several outdated and obsolete buildings. Implementation of various projects will require acquisition of additional properties adjacent to the campus. The Campus Master Plan 2004 also includes Design Guidelines that set forth a contract for ensuring that the design of new buildings contributes to a consistent architectural vocabulary for the campus. The Campus Master Plan 2004 is designed to accommodate a student enrollment of 17,900 FTES (academic year full time equivalent students), an increase of 2,900 FTES.
