Campus Master Planning
In 2010, a Campus Master Plan Steering Committee convened to guide the update to the 2000 Campus Master Plan.
A planning team led by Perkins+Will was selected to complete the update. A hallmark of the planning process has been its highly participatory and consensus-building activities.
A wide cross-section of on-campus groups including administrative, academic, student life and varsity sports leadership; faculty; staff; and students—were invited to attend interviews, focus groups and campus open house forums throughout the academic year. In addition, off-campus stakeholder groups and organizations from the city of Chattanooga and surrounding neighborhoods were invited to participate in the planning process.
Interviews, focus groups, and community open house forums were held to gather input on planning goals, concepts and final recommendations.
