Master planning the future of our campus

Purdue Calumet continues to grow in enrollment, prominence and as an agent for advancing northwest Indiana. As we grow, we must plan for the ongoing needs of our thriving regional university and neighborhood campus. We will do so in ways that meet our students’ needs, preserve the beauty of our campus and respect our surroundings.

Toward that end, Purdue Calumet and other campuses within the Purdue system are creating “Master Plans” to guide our future physical development. With expert direction from the consulting firm, Sasaki Associates, here’s a sampling of what the future may have in store for us:

  • Construction of additional classroom, laboratory, library, meeting and study spaces to accommodate anticipated continuing enrollment growth,
  • Additional student housing,
  • A west wing addition to our Student Union & Library that will meet many of our non-classroom space needs and serve as a “front door” to our campus,
  • Preservation of existing green space — Founders Plaza, the Woodmar lawn, the 169th Street oak grove, and the tract of wetland, as well as
  • Breaking up our “sea of parking” into segmented, tree-lined lots and, eventually adding another parking structure as surface lots give way to new buildings.

Of course, none of these projects is guaranteed, and no funding has yet been allocated for much of this development. With a master plan, however, we will be prepared when the opportunities to expand our campus arise.
