Missouri State University

FY 2008
PROGRAMMED (3-5 YEARS)


BUSINESS ENTREPRENEURIAL CENTER
The growing College of Business Administration has outgrown the existing facilities in Glass Hall. Additional space is needed to expand the entrepreneurial focus in the college. Existing programs, centers, institutes and student organizations will be moved from Glass Hall to the new facility.

CARRINGTON HALL RENOVATION
This campus landmark, built in 1908, is the Missouri State University central administration building. It is frequented by all students, faculty, staff and visitors to the campus. Renovations in Carrington Hall will include reallocation of internal spaces in order to better meet current and future needs. Infrastructure upgrades will include HVAC, plumbing, fire suppression and electrical system improvements.

ELLIS HALL RENOVATION/ADDITION
FACILITIES REUTILIZATION PLAN (FREUP) - PHASE lll

Renovation of Ellis Hall will bring much-needed improvements to benefit the Music Department. Currently, the music library is inadequate to serve the needs of the department. A 24,000-square-foot addition will house an expanded music library. The instructional, rehearsal and performance spaces will also be improved to meet the departmental mission.

STUDENT HOUSING
New student housing will be developed to assist in meeting the residential needs of all student categories (single, married, international, etc.).

SUPPORT SERVICES CENTER
This facility on the northwest portion of the core campus will consolidate most campus support services, including custodial, design & construction, environmental management, grounds, maintenance, postal services, printing services, receiving, procurement services, and work management. Relocating these departments to the campus perimeter will reduce traffic congestion in the central campus core and allow for reassignment of vacated space to priority academic needs.

UNIVERSITY HALL
Increased student entrance standards, brought about by selective admissions, have expanded classroom requirements for increasingly requested honors and required student success programs. Demolition of two small buildings and the construction of a new modern facility are planned. The new facility will host classrooms, the Office of International Studies and a Learning Center. In addition, a Student Services Center will provide for student-focused services that support the academic mission, including: counseling, testing, career services, international student services, multi-cultural affairs and student retention services. This facility will also serve as the campus welcoming center - the first stop for visitors and guests entering campus via the new formal entrance at National and Monroe.
