Students were surveyed in 2015 and again in 2016 as a part of our facilities master planning process. Students rated their experience with classroom, labs, and study space. As a part of the same process, over 30 focus groups were conducted with external groups. Common themes identified included the need for space to support new and enhanced programs, the need for enhanced community space for study and student engagement, the need for keeping up with technology, the need for improved campus orientation and way finding, and the need for funds to maintain all facilities.
While the master planning process continues, the Board of Trustees has been regularly briefed on the progress of the process.
