Master Plan Open Forums

You are invited to attend an open forum discussion about CFAES facilities, with a specific focus on the future of our Columbus Mid-West Campus (including Waterman Lab) and Wooster Campus.

Our college along with the Office of Planning, Architecture and Real Estate (PARE) will be working together to develop a CFAES Master Plan during the 2019-2020 academic year. Input from you is essential to ensure the plan represents the many individuals who make up the college.

Two open forums will be held:

  • WOOSTER – Thursday, September 5, 12:00-1:00 pm in the Shisler Center Ballroom – Discussion will focus on Wooster Campus
  • COLUMBUS – Tuesday, October 8, 12:00-1:00 pm in the Agricultural Administration Auditorium – Discussion with focus on Midwest Campus (including Waterman)

Lunch will be provided at each session.

More information about the CFAES Master Plan:
The CFAES Master Plan will establish a college-wide vision that aligns the college’s three campuses, Columbus, Wooster, and Statewide, with our mission and priorities. It will map out facilities investments that are immediate as well as future priorities. In addition to the college-wide vision, the plan will focus in-depth on Waterman, Columbus Mid-West Campus, and the Wooster Campus.

The college and the Office of Planning, Architecture and Real Estate (PARE) will work together to develop this plan. We will be supported by a planning and design team – Ayers Saint Gross and Erdy McHenry – along with a team of other consultants with specialized expertise.

The plan will include a data-driven space needs assessment for the Columbus and Wooster campus only. This will provide an important foundation for the CFAES Master Plan: it will identify areas where we can use our facilities more effectively and suggest areas where new facilities are needed. We are currently gathering extensive data about CFAES employees, students, courses, research, and space to inform this study.
