Master Plan Committee


This committee exists to review and provide input to the overall physical planning effort. The committee sees updates of Master Planning efforts for all facets (parking, transportation, storm water management, new buildings, etc.) of the overall Campus Master Plan, which is submitted to the Colorado Commission of Higher Education (CCHE) on a 10 year cycle. The committee evaluates and recommends capital construction requests from University Advancement, Council of Deans, and other sources. The internal Facilities Management Design Review Committee will provide informational updates to the Master Plan Committee.


Act as an advisory body to the University through the Vice President for University Operations on the physical development of the total environment of Colorado State University's campuses by development, revision, and application of the University's facilities master plan. The Master Plan Committee will offer input on campus growth through strategic input in support of the University Vision and Campus Experience within the campus framework.
