Master Plan 2010-2030: Looking to the Future was endorsed by the Illinois State University Board of Trustees on February 18, 2011. The plan presents a long-range blueprint for the physical development of Illinois State University – its future size, form, function, character, image, and environment.
In fall 2018, President Dietz charged the Master Plan Update Steering Team with producing an update to the Master Plan 2010-2030: Looking to the Future that considers the realities of operating as a public university in the State of Illinois during lean financial times. The Steering Team met with and gathered information from a wide range of university constituents and the Master Plan Update 2010-2030 reflects the feedback received. It also provides updates on many advancements made on the original 67 recommended actions in the Master Plan 2010-2030 Progress Report.
