NMU seeks community input

MARQUETTE — Northern Michigan University is seeking community input on its campus master plan, which will provide a guide for future physical changes on campus.

NMU recorded a recent campus forum where alternatives surrounding seven planning themes were presented, and created a corresponding online survey to gather feedback, according to a press release.

The survey will remain open through Nov. 2.

Master plans are typically reviewed and updated every 10-15 years. NMU began the process in July and held a number of campus focus group meetings. Jim Thams, director of Facilities/Campus Planning, said NMU would like to ensure that the Marquette community has the opportunity to participate in the planning process, reflect on current concepts and provide feedback.
