UNF’s Division of Administration and Finance will sponsor a public forum on April 28 to discuss the 2015-2025 Campus Master Plan.

The state of Florida requires universities to compose a 10-year Master Plan and revisit the plan every five years. This plan serves as a guide to keep the balance between on-campus development and UNF’s natural environment. The plan includes projections on parking, student housing and enrollment that help UNF’s administration accommodate the growing campus’ needs.

UNF’s natural environment has been a major campus focus since the university’s establishment in 1969*. By revisiting the Master Plan, planning teams are able to expand conservation zones and protect local wildlife such as the gopher tortoise, osprey and pitcher plant.

The forum is open to those interested in discussing and learning about the updated Master Plan and will be held in Building 58E, Senate Chambers, Room 3200 at 3 p.m.

*4/24/15 at 1:12 p.m. – Corrected with the correct year of establishment
