Student Affairs Master Plan

In 2008 B&D was selected by Texas Tech University to develop a master plan for the Division of Student Affairs to effectively position facilities, services, and programs in anticipation of a major enrollment increase by 2020. We had devised its master housing plan in 2002 and worked with them to conceptualize significant trends in 2005. Our tasks for this project included: a review of the campus master plan update; an analysis of regional demographic trends and enrollment projections; a review of the division’s budget, positions, and per student ratios as baselines; and an analysis of space usage. Our research indicated a significant level of satisfaction with the level and quality of services provided. We identified budgetary, square footage, and staffing thresholds needed to maintain service quality and a management model to encourage collaboration and minimize duplication. The creation of outreach programs linking support services to the growing student population in privately-developed campus edge housing complexes, as well as the development of a satellite recreation/union facility near commuter student parking, were also identified as priorities.
