WELCOME CENTER EXPANSION
The second phase of the Welcome Center will be devoted to supporting the functions of the University's Student Admissions and Success Center. Upon completion, departments will be relocated from Carrington Hall (the current Administration Building) to this new addition. By relocating these offices, space will be gained in Carrington, allowing for expansion and much needed growth of other administrative units.
SCIENCE COMPLEX PHASE 1
A science quad will be created in the southwest corner of campus through renovation of existing facilities. The renovation of Temple Hall constitutes the first phase of the two-phase vision of the science quad. Temple Hall was constructed in 1969 for a campus of 10,000 students. Now a campus of more than 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.
THEATRE AND DANCE BUILDING
The Art Annex will be razed to permit construction of a new 55,000 square-foot facility designed exclusively for this thriving program. The new structure will include performance studios, black box theatre, sound studio classroom, dressing rooms, and instrument storage. Attached to the southwest corner of Craig Hall will be a scene shop with all of the necessary features to support the black box theatre and provide a more intimate setting for departmental productions and performance workshops.
INTERMODAL TRANSFER STATION
A new intermodal transfer station is planned for the northeast edge of the Missouri State University main campus. The addition of this transfer station will provide multiple public transportation connections, access points to pedestrian and bicycle pathways, additional retail and office space, and increased public and University parking options. The University will partner with City Utilities and the Ozark Transportation Organization to bring expanded transportation options to downtown Springfield and Center City, and will work with the City of Springfield and Ozark Technical Community College to promote and increase mass transit use by all.
SUPPORT SERVICES CENTERThis facility on the west side of the core campus will consolidate most campus support services, including receiving, custodial, 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.
