Supporting Plans of the University
JMU's Six-Year Plan
The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2011 requires Virginia’s public institutions of higher education to prepare and submit Six-Year Plans (Â§ 23-38.87:17. Institutional six-year plans) on a biennial basis in support of the Top Jobs Act (TJ21) objectives.
The 2014-2020 Six Year Institutional Plan identifies “academic component activities” in addition to financial components. Within this comprehensive six-year plan our foremost commitment will be to create strategies that address the initiatives called for in the Top Jobs Legislation. In responding to each of these stated initiatives, there are two strategic foci on which we will be concentrating our efforts for the next three biennia: enrollment and efficiency.
The Master Plan
The Comprehensive Master Plan details proposed changes to campus building and land use as well as traffic, transportation and traffic. Approved by the JMU Board of Visitors Jan. 9, 2009, the Master Plan is conceptual and does not serve as a capital construction plan. Rather, the plan is a tool to help guide the university. This plan is subject to change based on a number of factors, which could include appropriate funding and enrollment numbers.
