UNM Master Plan Update


Consolidated Master Plan

UNM has completed our Consolidated Master Plan! This Consolidated Master Plan gives us the framework for moving our great University forward, one step at a time; it opens the doors to new possibiltiies. With an institution of the size and complexity of UNM, Master Planning is a continual process. Our University faces a major challenge of balancing increased enrollment and declining state funding while continuing to advance our mission as a flagship University.

The Consolidated Master Plan was adopted by the Board of Regents on September 13, 2011.

Master Plan Update

The UNM Master Plan Update started in 2007 we began internally to gather data and interview Deans and Academic Leadership, as well as engaging the internal facilities groups on campus. In 2008 the consultant, Dekker Perich Sabatini, was engaged to assist with the Update of the 1996 Barton Meyers Development Plan.

Current Master Plan Framework

The Current Master Plan Framework is the guideline for campus development over the next 10 years. The Framework does not dictate the exact timing or configuartion of new buildings, it provides recommendations for growth and serves as a guide for the University to work in for capital improvements during the next 10-20 years.
