Missouri State University

FY 2010
PROPOSED ( 11-25 YEARS)


FUTURE CLASSROOM BUILDINGS

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

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 close proximity, promoting additional collaborations and the sharing of resources.

FUTURE SCIENCE BUILDING
A Science Quad in the southwest corner of campus will be created.  Once the support services functions move to a peripheral facility, the existing Central Stores and Maintenance Building will be demolished and a new 100,000-square-foot classroom and laboratory building will be constructed on this site. 

TRANSIT OPERATIONS CENTER EXPANSION

An expansion of the Transit Operations Center is planned to consolidate all components of the Universitys public safety, transit, and parking operations into a single facility.  This expanded facility will also accommodate the campus Springfield Police Substation.

MIXED USE/HOUSING AND FUTURE GROWTH
As the campus continues to grow towards the downtown area, a mixed use development is being considered to help bridge the functions of these two areas.  Lower, street level retail and support spaces may be developed with residential housing located on the upper floors of these multi-story buildings.  The size and design of the buildings would provide a defined edge to the campus while providing the needed space and functions to support the University.

CHEEK HALL ADDITION

Located near the academic core of the campus, this future addition would provide space for additional classrooms, seminar rooms, and specialized laboratories to meet the needs of a growing campus.  Along with added academic space, the addition may allow for continued growth of the computer services department that supports the entire campus
