2014 Campus Master Plan

On April 11, 2014, Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader presented and the Board of Curators adopted the Campus Master Plan for Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T).‌

The master planning process relied on extensive campus and community involvement through the use of advisory and steering committees, open campus meetings, surveys, and interviews. Alumni, faculty, staff, students and administration in consultation with community leaders have helped define the future vision for the Missouri S&T campus.

Plan Drivers

Plan drivers were derived from the recently completed Strategic Plan. The primary themes of the Strategic Plan provide the foundation for the physical changes advocated in the Campus Master Plan and include:

  • Develop and inspire creative thinkers and leaders
  • Enhance reputation and visibility;
  • Achieve sustainable growth to ensure return on investment;
  • Increase interaction with renowned faculty, staff and services.

Additionally, three primary drivers, identified through the planning process, have helped to shape the master plan as follows:

  • Improving pedestrian safety along Bishop Avenue
  • Improving space utilization through renovations and right-sizing facilities
  • Reducing deferred maintenance

The continual process of campus evolution requires a Campus Master Plan that is dynamic in nature as is the Strategic Plan with which it is aligned. As the campus continues to evolve and change in pursuit of the vision defined within this Campus Master Plan, priorities may shift and the plan and associated implementation efforts may need to be refocused.
