Master Plan Team

The University has assembled two committees to guide the master planning process and provide regular input, feedback, and decision-making as the master plan develops. The Advisory Committee is made up of representatives from across the university and broader community, and serves to provide broad input from stakeholders across these groups. The Steering Committee is made up of a smaller number of individuals in WTAMU administration and is responsible for providing critical direction and leadership throughout the process.
