Missouri State University

FY 2010
PROGRAMMED (3-5 YEARS)


CENTER FOR ENTREPRENUERSHIP

The 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, which will make much needed space available in Glass Hall.

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.

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

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 and construction, environmental management, grounds, maintenance, 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.
