The Need for a Plan
As the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor continues to thrive, it is essential that we move forward with a vision and a plan that integrates strategic initiatives, programs and operations, and major capital projects. The campus master plan is a critical component of integrated planning, one that captures physically the university's vision: to be the university of choice for Christian higher education in the Southwest. The campus master plan identifies the projects that will close the gaps between where the university is today and where that vision would take it in the future.
While planning projects on the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor campus, University officials were dedicated to maintaining the sense of community that has become a hallmark of the UMHB experience. To this end, they considered existing pedestrian-friendly zones around campus that help visitors and the campus community find what they need. These zones include: campus arrival areas, core academic areas, areas synonymous with the first-year experience, residential areas, as well as, major activity and athletics areas.
