What is an Institutional Master Plan?

Institutional Master Planning will help us understand how best to support our education, research and innovation programs, and to evaluate necessary resources and investments. We will establish a common vision for TTUHSC’s academic, research and clinical teaching activities, supported by campus-specific master plans that prioritize investments over the next 15 - 20 years.

The goal of the Institutional Master Plan is to achieve balance in development across our schools and research divisions, maintaining the required infrastructure at each of our campuses.

Our Strategic Plan and Master Planning

Master Planning has been identified as a strategic priority within our current 5-year Strategic Plan. The Office of the Provost and University leadership have come together through the support of our president to engage in institutional master planning for all our campuses.
