In 2009, Indiana State University sought to create a new campus master plan to address a number of issues critical to campus development over the next 20 years. The effort would be conducted partly in response to nationwide competition for talented students and a desire to develop a vibrant, more residential campus environment.
RATIO led an extensive stakeholder input process, interviewing more than 60 deans, staff, students, vice presidents, and other faculty members in order to arrive at a consensus about the University’s most pressing needs.
The findings were addressed in the resulting master plan and included updated wayfinding; housing; athletics; new academic programs; and attraction and retention of high-quality students, faculty and staff. The plan’s exciting and achievable vision will guide the University’s development for the next two decades.
