IU Master Plan Approved


More than a year in the making, the Indiana University Master Plan has been unveiled to university trustees at their meeting on the campus of IU-Southeast. WFIU’s Daniel Robison reports from New Albany…

The report was commissioned by President Michael McRobbie within the first months of his tenure as a way to better structure the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses over the next 20 to 30 years.

The Bloomington Master Plan reinforces what many in the city have felt for years: the campus needs more and better positioned parking spaces and is overly congested due to poor traffic flows. The plan also shows the Bloomington campus has many facilities that are outdated or are quickly aging.

The report strongly suggests constructing significantly more space for use by professors and researchers.

IU’s Trustees will now use the Master Plan to set priorities for short and long term projects. The report makes no mention of how the university will pay for the dozens of suggestions contained in the 300-plus slides of Thursday’s presentation.

Daniel Robison

Daniel started as WFIU's Assistant News Director in July 2008. He graduated with a B.A. in history in 2007 and earned an M.A. in journalism two years later. Daniel hosts Ask the Mayor weekly and the occasional Noon Edition. He also hosts Morning Edition on Thursdays, sleepily. Daniel's beats include everything News Director Stan Jastrzebski wants him to cover. And it feels strange to type biography of myself in the third person like this. So that's that.
