Some time ago, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents asked campuses to update their facilities development plans and to summarize their current vision in formal reports. These reports review the physical campus development situation, including recent progress, and outline further steps that seem advisable over the next ten years.
The plan has been developed over the last few months through a process that involved various entities of the campus. The process included UNK administrative leaders, Faculty Senate, Student Senate and Staff Senate. Forums were held with these groups as well as an open campus forum and a Kearney community forum. In all, 250 members of the UNK and Kearney community attended these discussions. An advisory committee made up of representatives of the three Senates worked with a representative of the architectural firm Sinclair Hille to review the data and develop ideas to pass on to the administration for the development of the plan.
The plan was presented to the Board of Regents at their January 19, 2007 meeting. A copy of the plan can be found below.
