Master Plan


In 2010, President Ransdell challenged John Osborne, Chair, and the entire campus Master Plan Committee to update the Campus Master Plan last published in 2003. The Committee excitedly took on this challenge and the attached Campus Master Plan Update 2010-2022 was successfully published in its final version in August of 2011.  This document represents the updates and documents progress toward status campus development goals and is a collaboration of campus faculty, staff, students and Bowling Green City and County representatives.
