On April 27, 2017, Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader presented and the Board of Curators adopted the 2017 Campus Master Plan Update for Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T).‌

Beginning in the fall of 2013, 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, which led to the production of the plan document in the Spring of 2014. An abbreviated process was completed between October of 2016 and March of 2017 to update the master plan.

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 nationally and internationally
  • 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:

  • Improve pedestrian safety along Bishop Avenue (Hwy 63)
  • Renovate and right-sizing facilities to improve utilization
  • Reduce 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.
