Campus Master Plan: a chance for your voice to be heard

Submitted by Ethan Erickson

Dear K-State community,

I write today to share the latest update about our Next-Gen K-State Campus Master Plan, including how students, faculty, staff, community members and alumni can provide feedback into the plan.

In January, we launched the planning effort, a year-long process with the goal to unveil a finalized plan in 2025 for all three physical campuses. The study will include an in-depth evaluation and recommendation on how K-State's campuses should develop, grow and change to support the Next-Gen K-State strategic plan.

The feedback phase of the plan officially will launch Monday, March 25, and includes a survey to students, faculty and staff. The survey, developed by the university’s master planning consultant SmithGroup, is your opportunity to provide insight and feedback about our campuses

I also encourage everyone to join one of our campus townhall meetings next week. The sessions will provide an opportunity to network with SmithGroup and campus partners about your vision for K-State’s physical campus future.

We also will have other opportunities over the following weeks for additional input. Details will be shared in K-State Today. We also plan to share the survey link with members of the community, alumni and other interested stakeholders so they can offer their feedback, too. 

I invite all our students, faculty and staff across our Manhattan, Salina and Olathe campuses to complete the survey. It’s short and interactive, and it will help guide the evolution of our campuses for the next seven to 10 years.  

Thank you for your participation and support.
