The Campus Master Plan was approved by the Board of Trustees on May 20, 2006. It intended to be used as a "living document." As a dynamic, evolving institution, the Plan provides a flexible framework that can accommodate changes in attitudes about campus environments, new technologies and revised institutional requirements. This plan directly addresses the growth of the campus through 2015, and looks forward to growth in the decades beyond.
