With 24,000 students, more than 300 acres of agricultural research fields, and a new bio-defense research center, Kansas State University is poised to become one of the leading public land grant research universities in the nation. The comprehensive master plan builds on the university’s strategic plan for research and interdisciplinary curricula. It addresses where the campus can provide the facilities necessary for the university to become a top public research university by 2025. Planning addressed space needs, infrastructure, transportation systems, sustainability, landscape, housing and dining services. The process engaged campus communities through interviews, town halls and an interactive, web-based tool.
