UNDERWAY (0-2 YEARS)


FACILITY REUTILIZATION PLAN (FREUP) - PHASE l
The goal to improve existing academic facilities is the theme of the multi-phased Facilities Reutilization Plan (FREUP). The first phase of a four-phase FREUP program contributes to the University�s goal of consolidating colleges geographically. Siceluff Hall, Kings Street Annex, Temple Hall and Hammons Student Center will be renovated to accommodate academic and administrative requirements and enhance the programmatic mission of updating buildings with deferred maintenance issues. In order to achieve this, Siceluff Hall will be vacated and then reoccupied by units from the College of Arts & Letters, thus initiating a series of planned space reallocations via future FREUP phases.

JQH ARENA
A new arena will be constructed to accommodate the Bears and Lady Bears basketball teams and to serve as a site for convocations, commencements, concerts and other University and community events. The arena will seat 11,000 and will include many amenities not available in Hammons Student Center. Groundbreaking occurred in December 2006. The arena is scheduled to be open in the fall of 2008.

OZARKS PUBLIC HEALTH AND LIFE SCIENCE CENTER
This new facility, located on the west mall between Kemper Hall and Glass Hall, will be an interdisciplinary science center for conducting research and providing undergraduate and graduate educational programs that address public health and life science issues. Its applied research and educational programs will be guided by regional and state needs, and the work within the Center will involve collaborations with government, education, healthcare, business, and community service organizations. The research made possible by this facility is in concert with the public affairs mission of Missouri State University.

PUMMILL HALL/ HILL HALL RENOVATION
FACILITY REUTILIZATION PLAN (FREUP) - PHASE ll

In FREUP Phase ll, the exterior of Pummill Hall will be upgraded to improve energy efficiency. Classrooms, academic support areas and offices within both Pummill Hall and Hill Hall will be renovated to provide a professional learning environment for the students.

ROY BLUNT JORDAN VALLEY INNOVATION CENTER (JVIC) PHASE II RENOVATION
The former Missouri Farmer�s Association milling facility was acquired from the City of Springfield and renovated by the University to house a collaborative research center focused on nano-technology and bio-research. The facility houses both University personnel and researchers from private industry, allowing them to combine forces to perform cutting edge research. The first phase of the renovation was completed in the spring of 2007. The second phase of the project includes the renovation of the three-story, east portion of the complex. This portion of the building will house a pilot manufacturing line, clean rooms, and other research spaces to support the mission of JVIC. Construction is in progress; occupancy is anticipated in 2008.

UNIVERSITY RECREATION CENTER
In 2006, the Missouri State student body endorsed an initiative designed to create a facility in the center of the campus core for students, faculty and staff to participate in fitness activities, enjoy recreation opportunities and learn about other aspects of wellness. McDonald Arena has been targeted as the future home of the University Recreation Center, which will serve as a vital resource in support of the University�s Wellness Initiative
