MSSU master plan revealed to faculty members, community leaders

LONDON — Faculty members and community leaders on Monday had their first look at Missouri Southern State University’s 25-year, $194 million master plan.

The audience seemed receptive to the plan, which envisions Newman and Duquesne roads as tree-lined boulevards, an enlarged and renovated football stadium and pedestrian-focused core campus.

State Rep. Bill White, R-Joplin, said the university won’t always be a commuter university. He said he thinks it’s a good idea to limit the number of vehicles on campus.

“I like the idea of putting the emphasis on students on foot,” he said.
