A master plan is an incredible tool that gives NC State an opportunity to re-examine campus improvements every 10 to 20 years and prioritize near and long-term project goals. The Physical Master Plan is an extension of the Strategic Plan and guides the physical development of our campus, providing a short and long-term framework that is clear, flexible, and implementable. The Plan is a living document that is bold, visionary, and adaptable to change without compromising its core values and principles.
Has NC State Ever Done This Before?
NC State has a history of inclusive physical planning that is integrated with its strategic, academic, programmatic, space management and enrollment plans. These plans are updated approximately every 10 years to stay current with academic, research, and student life needs. As such, the university’s goal for a new Physical Master Plan is one that is uniquely NC State’s, clearly articulating the concepts and constructs that make the university distinctive and meaningful to the campus community and beyond. However, this is the most far-reaching physical master plan in NC State’s history. In addition to the five campus precincts in Raleigh, the Plan will also encompass the field labs at Lake Wheeler Road and Reedy Creek Road.
Why is This Important To Me?
NC State is unique, distinctive, and diverse. As part of the Wolfpack community, your voice matters. We want to hear your perspective on the spaces that you feel will make campus even more vibrant, dynamic, connected, usable, and beautiful. Your thoughts, concerns, and feedback throughout the planning process will help guide the Plan and shape the physical campus for years to come. We will look at buildings, roads, parking, walkways, open spaces, and many other physical campus elements during this process. Our aim is to work together to create a campus for the next generation of NC State students, faculty, and staff. Please join us!
