THE 2025 PLAN

X X X

A Master Plan is a work in progress, a guide to assist with future decisions; this brochure is a considerable step in the process of producing a Master Plan for Connors State College that will have a considerable effect on the appearance and environment of the constituent campuses. OSU Long Range Facilities Planning has worked with administration to develop the Stakeholders’ Guiding Principles and the Planning Assumptions (below) that are molding the ideas developed. LRFP is conducting a Building Survey, précised in this brochure, which will assist in the tough decision making needed for the success of this major rejuvenation. Work has begun and priorities have been identified, as shown on later pages. The result of our continuing deliberations will be a Master Plan that respects history but looks forward to an exciting future for Connors State College.

PROJECTS: TOP PRIORITIES Student Union Renovation Long Range Facilities Planning A major renovation and expansion will update aging facility to provide a new campus experience and celebrate over 50 years of tradition. Nursing and Allied Health Facility - Port Campus The new Nursing and Allied Health Facility will compliment shared programs with Indian Capital Technology Center, locate a Connors State College flagship program in a state-ofthe-art facility and provide much needed student space. New Campus Entry Sign A campaign to re-route major vehicular traffic to enter campus from the north. New entrance would serve as a new campus entrance and gateway to welcome students and visitors onto the Connors State College campus.

Classroom Building Renovation As the main historic gem on campus, a major renovation is planned that would update the facility to meet modernday code, technology, and egress standards.

Expo and Agriculture Hall of Fame The new center will welcome visitors, events and shows from around the region.

PROJECTS: IN PROGRESS Campus Safety/SecurityInfrastructure Improvements Campus improvements include new lighting, storm water run-off improvements and overall campus beautification.

FUTURE PLANNING

Farm and Ranch Operations Master Plan It is the intention of Connors State College to develop a Farm and Ranch Operations Master Plan that will support and continue to give vision to this invaluable resource. The master plan would investigate a long-term look at how the Agriculture and Wildlife programs at the college should be developed and managed in the future.

Code Compliance Plan Connors State College will work with the Authority Having Jurisdiction to develop and implement a phased, code compliant plan ensuring continued building and life safety on campus.

Haskell Building Connors State College will work with community leaders to identify and implement an effective use of the Haskell building in downtown Muskogee, Oklahoma.

Jacob Johnson Legacy Engineers and architects have accessed the current Jacob Johnson building and determined that it is no longer a viable or suitable environment for the college due to structural issues and asbestos. Recommendations have been made to incorporate the Jacob Johnson legacy and redevelop the building site for future green space.


WARNER CAMPUS | NEW CAMPUS GREEN AND PLAZA DEVELOPMENT INTRODUCTION As a major part of the development on the Warner campus, significant improvements are proposed to enhance the campus green, creating a campus core that centralizes the activity of students, faculty and staff. A new pedestrian plaza would give honor to the legacy of Jacob Johnson and the building that once stood in the center of campus. Removing the inadequate facility will help define campus and open up the sight lines towards the new Student Union and the Classroom Building.

Dr. Tim Faltyn

As we begin our second century at Connors State College, our formula for success has three distinct elements: • To provide educational programs and activities that connect our students, faculty, staff and community with a more prosperous future. • To provide state-of-the-art facilities as well as resources so that those we serve have the best opportunity to achieve excellence. • To surround those we serve with people who care just as much about their success as they do.

Doing these things efficiently in a well-maintained, safe and secure environment is what I refer to as helping our people fulfill the promise of their potential. This endeavor is supported by our mission of building futures one at a time and our reputation as a national leader in quality transfer, workforce and community education. For over a year, the goal of our master planning process has been to give a clear direction and focus to the vital role that our facilities play in the success of the college. The 2030 Master Planning process has been facilitated by Oklahoma State University Long Range and Facilities Planning. With more than two centuries of experience in planning and leadership between us, our team began by establishing our strengths and the planning principles that are to be the foundation from which to build our future. Early in the process, several of our team noted that the people of Connors State were consistently listed as one of our greatest strengths as a college. Once the surveys, assessments, evaluations and priority lists were complete, it was time to assemble the plan. In communicating back and forth, LRFP described the parts and pieces coming together as the drafting of blueprint for success. A prominent and loyal supporter of Connors State suggested that referring to our plan as a “blueprint” just didn’t seem quite right. It has been said that the true Connors State faithful bleed orange and black, so in honor of his insight and all the people who have made Connors State great, we have taken to calling our 2030 Master Plan our “orange print” for a successful future. This plan, when combined with the 2012 Connors State College Strategic Plan, outlines a long-range vision to promote prosperity and accommodate growth. Inherent in this plan is the flexibility necessary to thrive in the current economic, accreditation and political environment we operate in today. The true value of this plan is found in its usefulness as a tool in responding to the current and future needs of our college by: • Being a guide and resource for our leaders as we endeavor to build upon Connors State College legacy of growth and success. • Being a conversation starter with our supporters designed to “inspire the believers” about how to best build a brighter future for Connors State College. • Being a guide to effectively manage new and existing resources in ways that ensure the sustained success of Connors State College.

Honoring a legacy of excellence is not just a slogan, but a commitment to restoring, renovating, and building an infrastructure that will ensure the long-term viability of Connors State College. A vital part of the health and wealth of eastern Oklahoma, Connors State is an educational and economic driver for our region. This 2025 Master Plan is an important tool for respecting and restoring the resources of our past as we chart a course of success in our future.

Dr. Tim Faltyn, President, Connors State College May 29th, 2012
