University of Kansas officials say the school’s multi-million dollar 10-year master plan would expand academic and research programs and tie the Lawrence campus together.
The university previewed the plan Wednesday for the Kansas Board of Regents, which unanimously approved the summary document.
The final plan will be released in the spring. That plan will include proposals and analysis on space, classroom use, land use and coordination with the Lawrence community.
One proposal would be a complex that would include housing for upper-level and graduate students and retail space. Another would link Haworth Hall to the west campus. It would connect natural, physical and life sciences with engineering and pharmacy.
Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said officials are working to find the funding for the plan.
