Campus Facilities Master Plan Public Forums Scheduled

In November 2009, the university began development of a comprehensive long-range facilities campus master plan, designed to link the University Strategic Plan to the long-range physical development of campus.

JJR of Ann Arbor, Michigan, a firm of national specialists in integrated higher education planning, is coordinating the project. JJR’s project portfolio includes work on more than two hundred campuses worldwide.

The master planning process includes meetings with individuals and groups from both the campus and the community to engage in discussions that will help identify critical campus and community issues that the planning team should consider.

Members of JJR met with IUP and community members in December to begin the process, and the JJR Team will be on campus February 3, 4, and 5 for several meetings open to the university community.

These meetings include:

  • February 3, 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., special session for IUP faculty
  • February 4, 9:00 to 10:00 a.m., Council of Deans; 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., universitywide open session; 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., meeting with Executive Planning Committee; 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., meeting with community members

On February 5, the consultants will meet with the Campus Advisory Committee and Core Group before leaving campus at 1:00 p.m.

Locations of the public sessions will be announced closer to the date. More information also will be available on the Administration and Finance Division website.

During the February 4 meetings, the consulting team will present a framework plan with some initial conceptual plans based on input already received from IUP and community members.

Once completed, the long-range campus master plan will bring together elements from the recent facility plans and space studies that will guide campus development for the next ten to fifteen years. The plan is expected to be completed in Spring 2011.
