Facilities Master Plan

As part of the University of Evansville's Strategic Plan, a core goal is to secure the resources necessary to support the University's pursuit of excellence. The University has undertaken a comprehensive update of its facilities master plan to determine how best to address existing needs and identify new facilities essential to growth as an academic institution of recognized quality. In the fall of 2011, the University engaged a planning team comprised of Hafer Associates, Mackey Mitchell Architects, Brailsford & Dunlavey, and Rundell Ernstberger. To update the master plan, the University formed a Master Plan Steering Committee whose members included:

  • Jack Barner
  • Lora Becker
  • Dana Clayton
  • Larry Horn
  • Jill Jungemann
  • Tom Kazee
  • Chad Miller
  • John Mosbo
  • Barbara Price
  • John Stanley
  • Jeff Wolf

Campus Master Plan

In collaboration with and guided by the Steering Committee, over the course of a four-month process the team:

  • Facilitated focus group interviews with campus stakeholders
  • Summarized interview findings to map consensus priorities
  • Developed and refined planning programming and concepts
  • Analyzed market data for on- and off-campus student housing
  • Assessed existing building conditions and deferred maintenance needs
  • Generated conceptual cost range opinions
  • Prepared facility planning concepts and renderings

The process undertaken by the planning team involved in-depth engagement through numerous focus group sessions and interviews with students, faculty, staff, and stakeholders. The conversations were facilitated to produce an understanding of the University's strengths and opportunities for improvement. The insights from these sessions have helped to shape and prioritize the elements of this plan.

Conceptual cost opinions have been rendered for many elements of the facility master plan. The figures detailed in this study are for comparison purposes and are not based on a final design but serve to reflect the relative scale of different opportunities within the master plan.
