The Columbus State University Master Plan is a 10 year plan that concentrates on the physical development of our campus and its facilities, encompassing elements of campus organization, land and building use, vehicular and pedestrian circulation, infrastructure, open space, relationship to the Columbus community and criteria for campus site and building design to ensure compliance with accepted physical master plan principles. Our physical master plan follows the institution's strategic plan so that it can function as a physical reflection of the strategic directions being taken by the institution.
The purpose of the physical master plan for Columbus State University is to provide detailed guidelines for the physical development of the campus in order to support our academic mission. This physical master plan seeks to achieve two principal objectives: First, to foster the development of a physical campus that is efficient in serving the academic mission and in its operation; and second, to create a physical environment that is beautiful and emblematic of our educational purpose, and which encourages social and intellectual interchange among students, faculty and staff. This physical master plan is reflective of the existing campus and is responsive to our future academic mission by supporting appropriate renovations and extensions.
