Bricks and Mortar, The Master Plan
The Capital Projects and Planning Department designs and develops an aesthetically pleasing environment that is conducive to the learning process of every student. We focus on environments that support and enhance the experience of every student, faculty, alumni and guest of the university. We provide more than just bricks and mortar; ultimately, we create the environment to positively impact the life of each student.
Northeastern State University is focused on the development of several new spaces for students, residents, faculty and the general public. We invite everyone to follow the progress of several notable projects as we begin construction. Each of these is focused on the engagement of students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community alike. We are proud of our students, our rich history and our campus.
Join us in building lives.
