2024 Master Plan

KU is in the process of developing our 2024 master plan with a 10 year and beyond horizon to ensure campus buildings, facilities and infrastructure support KU’s mission, values and priorities.

Master Plan Recorded Townhall

Two identical Master Plan Townhall presentations followed by Q&A breakout discussions where participants could ask questions and provide feedback, were held on Nov. 16 and 17. Watch the recording of the Nov. 17 presentation.

Defining the Future of KU!

In summer 2022, KU began work on developing the 2024 master plan, which will help define the future of KU!

The master plan will seek to ensure that the physical campus supports and advances the three priorities set forth in our Jayhawks Rising strategic plan:

  • Student Success
  • Healthy & Vibrant Communities
  • Research & Discovery.

A campus master plan is the result of extensive collaboration, consultation and thoughtful input from all campus stakeholders. It is a shared vision created by and for the KU community.

Creating the new master plan will follow a process of campus engagement during which hundreds of individuals will be engaged in meetings, focus groups, interviews and community forums. The process will also include extensive analysis of building and facility use, historic patterns, land use, program accommodation, sustainability and other areas. The process is intended to give all stakeholders — students, faculty, staff, and others — multiple opportunities to contribute ideas and feedback.

The consultants selected to lead the plan, Perkins&Will and Multi Studio, will be engaging all members of the KU community throughout the planning process, starting with community-wide surveys, individual and group interviews, and town hall/open house events.

Opportunities to engage and provide input will be announced on this website, by email, and through social media.
