Supporting Plans of the University
JMU's Six-Year Plan
The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2011 (TJ21) requires Virginia's public institutions of higher education to prepare and submit Six-Year Plans. During the 2015 General Assembly session, joint resolutions approved by the House and Senate also require that the mission, vision, goals, and strategies expressed in the statewide strategic plan framework guide the development of the strategic plan and six-year plan at each public institution of higher education.
JMU's 2016-2022 Six Year Institutional Plan reflects our support of statewide goals and the citizens of the Commonwealth through our emphasis on student citizenship, engagement, efficiency and effectiveness.
In addition, JMU's Six Year Capital Outlay Plan outlines proposed capital projects for the next three biennia.
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.
