Campus Master Plan

Arkansas Tech University has embarked on a focused campus master planning process to help set a road map for the future. This master planning process, encompassing the Russellville campus, Ozark campus, and Lakepoint conference center, is being led by Polk Stanley Wilcox architects (Little Rock, AR) and Perkins + Will campus planners (Austin, TX).

Over the next nine months there will be a variety of opportunities to engage with the university’s master planning consultants to express your opinions and make a lasting positive impact on our campus. Topics will include campus facilities (from classrooms to offices and housing to athletics), campus culture and community, safety and security, circulation/mobility/access, emergency preparedness, and technology.

Students, faculty, and staff can learn more about the campus master plan process on this webpage and have opportunities to provide feedback and identify opportunities to improve Arkansas Tech University for generations to come.
