ASU Comprehensive Master Plan


The planning firm JJR, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, was selected to lead the development of the campus master plan through a process that began with the issuance of a Request for Qualification in the fall of 2010. At the beginning of the Spring 2011 semester a committee, with representatives from the Dean’s Council, Faculty Senate Athletic Department, Student Affairs Student Government, Registrar’s Office, Research& Technology Transfer, Delta Heritage Initiatives, The Delta Center, Staff Senate, Administration, and Facilities Management, was formed to select teams for interview and conduct the interview process. The committee interviewed three teams from a total of five submittals. From that interview process JJR was selected to negotiate a contract for the development of the master plan.
