Where are we now?

The Campus Master Plan is currently in “Phase 3” of the timeline.

Phase Date Milestone
1 Spring/Summer 2020

The Campus Master Plan process began in the Spring of 2020 just as the campus was closed due to the pandemic. It was an odd time, but a good time to think about the Campus’ future.

President Papazian formed an Advisory Committee that is represented by students, faculty, key staff, administrators, the City of San José and the CSU Chancellor's Office. The Advisory Committee meets at least once a semester to provide guidance to the Campus Master Planning process.

The Campus Master Plan Preliminary Background Report explains the scope and process of the project, summarizes the overall campus context and direction, outlines existing issues and opportunities, and synthesizes this information into preliminary goals.

Phase 2 will occur over the 2021-2022 Academic Year. During Phase 2, the framework for the Campus Master Plan will be discussed that will inform the Preferred Direction of the Campus Master Plan. This will be the basis of the CEQA Analysis for the project.
