Missouri State University

FY 2006
PROPOSED (11-25 YEARS)


HEALTH COLLEGE EXPANSION

As program growth continues in health-related fields, the College of Health & Human Services will require additional instructional, laboratory, clinical and research space. This major addition to the north of the Professional Building will nearly double the available space, allowing for educational program offerings in the athletic training/sports medicine, biomedical sciences, communication and speech disorders, nursing, physician�s assistant studies, social work and potentially, occupational therapy.

TEMPLE HALL RENOVATION
A science complex will be created in the campus core through new construction and renovation of existing facilities. The renovation of Temple Hall constitutes the second phase of this vision. Temple Hall was constructed in 1969 and requires major upgrading to adapt to the expanded research and teaching requirements keyed to the University�s theme of science and the environment.

CRAIG HALL RENOVATION
As new facilities are created for the College of Arts & Letters, the vacated space in Craig Hall will need to be renovated to meet the requirements of the programs that will remain there. Built in the 1960�s, this structure needs renovation, including the creation of state-of-the-art classrooms and an upgrading of the still functional Coger Theatre, to allow Craig Hall to meet the technology and instructional needs of the College.

KEMPER HALL/KINGS STREET ANNEX RENOVATION
A science complex will be created in the campus core through new construction and renovation of existing facilities. The renovation of Kemper Hall and Kings Street Annex constitutes the third and final phase of this vision. The upgrading of these two time-worn facilities will enable them to better fulfill the expanded research and teaching requirements of the University�s science and the environment theme.

CHEEK HALL RENOVATION
Due to numerous interior reconfigurations over the years to serve a diversity of educational missions, including the main computer center, Cheek Hall requires a major modification. This renovation project will redesign, modernize and upgrade the grossly inadequate HVAC and electrical systems serving the facility.

FUTURE RESEARCH BUILDING
A new facility will be designed to meet the expanding needs of the College of Humanities and Public Affairs. This expansion will also provide space to allow the college to consolidate its departments into a close proximity, promoting the sharing of resources and ideas.

TRANSIT OPERATIONS CENTER EXPANSION
An expansion of the transit operations center is planned to consolidate all components of the University�s public safety, transit, and parking operations into a single facility. This expanded facility will also accommodate the campus� Springfield Police Substation.

FUTURE CLASSROOM BUILDING
As University academic programs continue to expand, particularly graduate programs, new requirements will exist for additional teaching and seminar rooms, computer and specialized laboratories and administrative space. This facility serves as a placeholder to allow for the construction of a new academic building without negatively impacting the overall campus plan.
