Preliminary master plan to be unveiled at open house April 17

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – A preliminary version of Marshall University’s Huntington campus master plan, which is currently under development, will be reviewed by the community at an open house. The event will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday,  April 17, in room BE-5 of the Memorial Student Center.

All members of the university and Huntington communities are invited to attend, said Dr. Karen Kirtley, Marshall’s senior vice president of administration.

“We are currently at the latter part of the idea generation stage of the process,” Kirtley said. “It’s important that we take time now to see what the community has to say about the plans.”

Plans also call for the preliminary plan to be presented to the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission before refining the plan. Further information on the planning process can be found on the Marshall University website at
