PAE-3: Physical Campus Plan
|4.00 / 4.00||
Does the institution's physical campus plan include sustainability at a high level?:
A brief description of how the physical campus plan or amendment includes sustainability:
The 2005 Campus Master Plan Update offers a 10-year vision for the physical development of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock campus and outlines specific actions to make the plan a reality. The master plan forges clear connections with the surrounding community, strengthening the University’s role as a cultural and economic resource to the region.
The vision is structured around seven themes:
A vibrant on-campus community
Strong connections to the University District and larger metropolitan community
A physical environment that supports learning and uses resources wisely
Coleman Creek as the focal point of campus
Cohesive architecture and a park-like landscape
Clear circulation and access
Land acquisition in support of UALR’s mission and district revitalization
A significant section of plan includes the creation of a 47 acre greenway around a restored and enhanced waterway, Coleman Creek. The greenway will reach the full north-south length of the campus with vegetation, bicycle and walking paths and unites the campus and ties it too the Fourche Creek Wetlands and War Memorial Park. A large segment of this project has been completed.
