UND to begin first phase of Master Planning Process

Posted on 9/14/2015

Initial effort centers on information gathering, analyses and capital requests selection for the next legislative session. Subsequent phases to include more opportunities for community engagement

The University of North Dakota is launching the first of a multiple-phased process to determine and successfully implement a Campus Master Plan.

The initial phase, which will be completed no later than February 2016, will focus solely on information gathering, analyses and defining frameworks for select capital projects and financial requests during the next legislative session. This phase is a response to a recent directive from the State Board of Higher Education SBHE that called for all 11 North Dakota University System campuses to file a master plan with the system office.

According to Dave Chakraborty, UND associate vice president for facilities management, future phases of the Master Planning Process will more robustly engage the broader campus and Grand Forks community, and will include multiple opportunities for feedback and input.

"The successful Master Planning Process will take place over an extended period of time, and will include a comprehensive look at the physical environment of the campus, and, most importantly, will look at how that environment helps us to succeed in our educational mission," Chakraborty said.

A Master Planning steering committee will serve as the principle working group for the process. The committee, which comprises academic deans, a student government representative and other key stakeholders, will submit its recommendations to the UND President's Executive Council.

For a list of steering committee members, updates and opportunities to constructively engage and help shape the future of the UND campus, visit the Master Planning website.
