Olivet College invites local communities to discuss campus master planning initiative
Nov 13, 2012

Members of the local communities are invited to join President Steven M. Corey, Ph.D., in a special dialogue about the future of the Olivet College campus Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 5:30 p.m. in the Kirk Center’s Oaks Dining Room. Residents of Bellevue, Charlotte, Marshall, Olivet and other surrounding communities are strongly encouraged to attend the event, which is free and open to the public.

With President Corey two years at the helm, the college community is now well into the process of Charting the Course for Olivet College 2020 and Beyond, its strategic vision that encompasses all aspects of academic and community life through eight key attributes and their associated strategic objectives.

With the “Vision 2020” as its guide, the college is in the process of integrating these goals into a Master Plan involving input from the entire college and community that will enhance the outcomes of the vision as it relates to the physical environment of the campus.

“Among other things, the strategic plan calls for increasing the vibrancy of the campus and community, strategically growing the residential enrollment, and reinforcing and improving connections between the campus and the greater community,” said President Corey. “With these things in mind, the college is undertaking this comprehensive campus and facilities master planning initiative. Through this process we hope to define how we’ll develop the buildings and grounds of the future Olivet College campus in a way that serves the needs of the college and greater community.”

Two outside organizations, Christman Company and MAYOTTEgroup Architects, have been tasked with providing the framework for the Master Plan. The team has been working diligently to involve the entire college and local community in creating a shared vision of what the next generation of the Olivet campus and its facilities need to be. Once the process of integrating Olivet’s strategic objectives with input from the college community is complete, the team will begin planning and designing an achievable long term path toward this shared vision.
