Missouri State University

FY 2007
PLANNED (6-10 YEARS)


WILLIAM H. DARR AGRICULTURAL CENTER

(Not Shown)
The William H. Darr Agricultural Center, located southwest of the Springfield Campus, will be further expanded to provide additional educational opportunities for the Department of Agriculture. Included in this phase will be construction of a new multi-purpose education building to enable on-site and distance learning programs and the ability to host events sponsored by the Department of Agriculture and other academic units.

THEATRE & DANCE BUILDING
Upon relocation of the Art & Design Department, the existing Art Annex will be razed to permit construction of a new facility to adjoin Craig Hall. This new 55,000-square-foot facility will be designed exclusively for this thriving program. The new structure will connect to the pedestrian tunnel beneath Grand Street and afford another accessible corridor to the campus from the southern parking areas.

TEMPLE HALL RENOVATION
A science complex will be created in the campus core through renovation of existing facilities. The renovation of Temple Hall constitutes the first phase of the two-phase vision of the science complex. Temple Hall was constructed in 1969 for a campus of 10,000 students. Now a campus of nearly 20,000 students, Temple Hall requires major upgrading to adapt to the expanded research and teaching requirements keyed to the University�s theme of science and the environment. Temple Hall will be renovated to create updated classrooms, laboratories and research space.

CRAIG HALL RENOVATION
FACILITIES REUTILIZATION PROGRAM (FREUP) - PHASE lV

As new facilities are programmed and 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 1960s, this structure needs renovation, including the creation of state-of-the-art classrooms and an upgrade of Coger Theatre, to allow Craig Hall to meet the instructional needs of the College.

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 athletic training/sports medicine, biomedical sciences, communication and speech disorders, nursing, physician�s assistant studies, social work and, potentially, occupational therapy.

KEMPER HALL/KINGS STREET ANNEX RENOVATION
The renovation of Kemper Hall and Kings Street Annex constitutes the second phase of the vision for the science complex. The upgrading of these two facilities will enable the university to better fulfill its research and teaching requirements.

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.

STUDENT HOUSING
New student housing will be developed to assist in meeting the residential needs of all student categories (single, married, international, etc.) while conserving University resources. Two potential sites exist � one just off the campus in a transitional block connecting the University to the downtown area (between Elm and Walnut, Kimbrough and Jefferson) and another along Kimbrough just north of Madison.
