Welcome

Guided by the priorities and goals of MPact 2025, the University’s first Systemwide Strategic Plan, and previous planning efforts, the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus has commenced a campus plan update process that will assist the University in physically translating its academic mission and strategic vision through a data-driven approach. The campus plan update will be a flexible guide for future development, focusing on the university's needs over the next 10 years, and envisioning how the campus should feel and function. This website will keep you updated on what's happening with the campus plan update, and how you can get involved!

Upcoming Events

The Board of Regents have been engaged in the development of the plan since the beginning of the process. Review of the final plan is anticipated in Fall 2021.

Process

The campus plan update process is organized into four phases.

Engagement

The campus plan update team will engage the University of Minnesota Twin Cities community during the first two phases to gather feedback on the existing campus and on the proposed plan. Stay tuned for more details!

Visioning

Phase 3 will focus on the draft documentation of the preferred vision for campus community feedback.
