Campus Master Plan visit Nov. 5-7
Dear K-State Community,
The Campus Master Plan Update process is drawing to a close. Representatives from Ayers Saint Gross, our planning consultants, will be on the Manhattan campus Nov. 5-7. This is their final visit to Manhattan as part of the planning process. While on campus they will meet with Facilities Planning and the Campus Master Plan Update Task Force. They also will present information about the Campus Master Plan at four open campus meetings:
• Monday, Nov. 5, 6-7 p.m., K/S Ballroom, K-State Student Union;
• Tuesday, Nov. 6, 12:30-1:30 p.m., Sunflower Room, K-State Student Union;
• Tuesday, Nov. 6, 5:30-6:30 p.m., Sunflower Room, K-State Student Union; and
• Wednesday, Nov. 7, 12:30-1:30 p.m., Purple Pride Conference Room, third floor of the K-State Alumni Center.
The same content will be presented at all four times listed above, but the presentation is being offered more than once to provide the opportunity for as many people as possible to participate. Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited and encouraged to attend any of the four open campus meetings. For those who cannot attend in person, the 6-7 p.m. open campus meeting on Nov. 5 will be videostreamed and available on K-State HDTV.
Campus input has been important to the development of the plan and the open meetings offer the campus community an opportunity to see the outcomes of the planning process. Each meeting will include a presentation about the proposed Campus Master Plan Update, followed by time for discussion and questions. Additionally, information about the plan will be available on the Campus Master Plan Update website and campus constituents will be able to comment on aspects of the plan in that context.
Thank you in advance for participating in this process and sharing your thoughts about the future of Kansas State University. We look forward to seeing you at the open campus meetings!
