Campus Master Plan Update
As part of K-State 2025, the university has embarked on a comprehensive update of its Campus Master Plan, which was last updated in 2004. Master planning provides a road map for growth and renewal, while helping us decide the best place to make capital investments. By moving forward with this planning effort at this time, we can develop a more comprehensive approach to our future.
A Campus Master Plan Update Task Force with representatives from across our campus was appointed to assess and document facility needs on the Manhattan campus. The Baltimore planning and architecture firm of Ayers Saint Gross was selected to lead the assessment.
Ayers Saint Gross gathered information on the specific facility needs of academic and administrative units during 2012. Representatives from Ayers Saint Gross conducted a series of stakeholder focus group meetings and open campus meetings to gather opinions, experiences and observations about the campus from a wide variety of individuals. Input was also collected via a web-based survey provided by Mind Mixer.
After analysis of the data supplied by our campus constituents, the firm developed initial proposals for additional feedback. The final set of recommendations will be presented to the university leadership during spring 2013.
