5-Year Capital Outlay Master Plan (formerly the 5-year Comprehensive Master Plan)

Western Michigan University's 5-Year Capital Outlay Master Plan report is developed and submitted to the State each year, for the five-year period starting two years after the plan is developed. For example, the plan submitted in 2019 is for fiscal years 2021-2025. 

The purpose of the plan is to "set the direction for development and growth at Western Michigan University," in order to support WMU's vision to be "learner-centered, discovery driven, and globally engaged." The plan entails many aspects of Western Michigan University, including instructional programming, facility assessment and initiatives to be taken in the future.
