APSU Master Plan wins outstanding design award

10/8/2013

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Earlier this year, Austin Peay State University unveiled its 2013 Master Plan, which projects how the campus is expected to grow and develop over the next 15 years. That growth will likely change the look of APSU, with new buildings and green spaces taking shape in the coming years, but members of the University community need not worry. According to the national magazine American School & University, APSU will continue achieving distinctiveness and excellence in form, function and design with its 2013 Master Plan.

The magazine selected the APSU Master Plan to appear as an “Outstanding Design” in the 2013 American School & University Architectural Portfolio. This publication celebrates the best in education design in the country.

“We’re pleased that American School & University magazine has singled out APSU for its forward-thinking campus design,” Mitch Robinson, vice president of finance and administration at APSU, said. “We’re focused on student success, retention and improving student life at Austin Peay. We want our students to thrive here, so we have to create an environment that is conducive to their success.”

The APSU 2013 Master Plan was developed by DOBER LIDSKY MATHEY, Campus and Facility Planners. The plan was recently approved and endorsed by the Tennessee Board of Regents, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission and the State Building Commission.

According to the Master Plan’s executive summary, “The Campus Plan represents much more than a layout for determining sites of future buildings, landscape improvements and modifications to circulation. It also reflects APSU’s vision to instill values for life and focus on academic excellence.”
