PNW Master Plan

PNW is developing a master plan to align the physical campus with the strategic vision of the institution. Guided by the strategic plan, it will provide a roadmap for near-term decisions and framework for the future.

The final deliverable will be a comprehensive and flexible plan which will address the needs of the university over the next 10 to 15 years.

This process follows the 2016 unification of Purdue University Calumet and Purdue University North Central to create Purdue University Northwest.
