Forums scheduled to present findings of campus planning study

Northwest Missouri State University will host representatives of Ayers Saint Gross, a Baltimore-based master planning and architectural firm, for a series of open forums to unveil the results of their collaborative work to develop a campus master plan for the University.

The forums, which are open to the public, are scheduled for 5 p.m. Monday, April 11, and 9 a.m. and noon Tuesday, April 12, in The Station.

Northwest engaged with Ayers Saint Gross early last year to develop its first comprehensive campus master plan in decades. The plan has examined Northwest’s buildings, grounds, space needs, circulation and infrastructure. Dozens of meetings with stakeholders were convened during the last year to gather input, including a series of open forums last fall to share the planners’ initial findings.

During the winter, the groups worked to develop a new shared vision for the University that links curriculum with place, town with gown and unify the campus. The master plan establishes a long-term framework for the evolution of the campus by helping Northwest develop clear land-use strategies, which allows for flexibility as the University’s needs change.
