Room 310, Kent Student Center

As the Foundations of Excellence: Building the Future campus improvement projects draw to a close this year, Kent State University is beginning a comprehensive facilities master planning process to identify a vision for the Kent Campus.April 12 workshop aims to gather input for Kent Campus Facilities Master Planning process.

The facilities master plan will guide the alignment of university resources and capital investments with the objectives set forth in the university’s strategic roadmap. The development of the plan will take about a year to complete. 

As part of the process to determine facility priorities for the next decade, the university is seeking input from all stakeholders, says Mark Polatajko, senior vice president for finance and administration.

A workshop on the topic take place on Wednesday, April 12, from 3:30-5 p.m. in Room 310 of the Kent Student Center.  

“I urge all members of the leadership team at the university to join in the next phase of the Kent State transformation by attending an upcoming workshop and encouraging the faculty, staff and students they work with to attend as well,” Polatajko says.

Those who are unable to attend the workshop can still provide feedback. Beginning April 12, an interactive website will allow participants to select locations on a map of the Kent Campus and make comments about that space. The website will be available here.

Any questions about the facilities master plan should be directed to Michael Bruder, executive director of facilities, planning and design, at
