Masters of master planning

Mizzou wins national awards for its beautiful landscaping and its thoughtful campus planning, but it doesn’t happen by accident. Throughout the year, a committee of faculty, staff and students is hard at work providing insight and expertise to help MU develop its long-range campus master plan.

Faculty, staff and students across campus are part of the process, too. At an annual open forum, they are invited to hear an update on Mizzou’s master plan and to provide comments and feedback. The hearing this year will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, March 18, in the Reynolds Alumni Center. A printed insert with detailed information about the master plan will be inserted into the March 18 issue of Mizzou Weekly.

Following that hearing, there will be a reception to honor Perry Chapman, MU’s longtime campus planner and to introduce the new master planner, Linda Eastley. More information is online at

On the previous day, Campus Facilities will hold its semiannual building coordinators meeting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, March 17 at the Reynolds Alumni Center. Building coordinators will be briefed on such issues as summer road closings and construction, after-hours calls to Campus Facilities’ service desk, sustainability and energy conservation.
