The Campus Master Planning process is part of a series of planning efforts that occur every five years for State Universities, at the direction of Florida's Board of Governors.
The Strategic Plan is the first component in the planning process, and it seeks to reaffirm the University's Mission and Vision, and outline the strategy and actions to be taken for achieving and measuring future success. FGCU is currently updating its Strategic Plan for 2015-2025. See past plans here:
The Campus Master Plan is the second component in the planning process, and its purpose is to address the need and planned provision of buildings, roads, parking, public transportation, solid waste, drainage, sewer, potable water, and recreation and open space during the coming 10 to 20 years. The Campus Master Plan must contain elements relating to future land use, intergovernmental coordination, capital improvements, recreation and open space, general infrastructure, housing, and conservation. Each element must address compatibility with the surrounding community, and the plan in its entirety must be formally adopted by the FGCU Board of Trustees.
The Campus Master Plan 2015-2025 is currently under development, headed up by Campus Planning Group & Phil Graham Landscape Architecture. The following links will provide specific information about current and past Master Plans:
The Campus Development Agreement is an agreement between Florida Gulf Coast University and Lee County which allocates funding from the State University System to financially support the impact of the growth of our campus on the surrounding community. The Campus Master Plan plays an important role in determining the specifics of the Campus Development Agreement.
