Students will have access to modern learning environments that support current teaching methods.
In order to develop a 21st century skillset, our students must have access to a 21st century learning environment. Pittsburg State has based its building needs on its strategic academic needs. The end result is a facilities master plan that fulfills our current requirements while also anticipating our future needs.
Within the last year, Pittsburg State has completed major facilities improvements with the opening of the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts, the Robert W. Plaster Center and the renovated and expanded Jack H. Overman Student Center. But other facilities enhancements are essential if select academic programs are going to provide truly modern learning environments.
The Gladys A. Kelce College of Business is housed in what is known as the old College High Building at the corner of Broadway and Cleveland Street. Architects will suggest how that facility can be expanded and renovated to provide a learning environment for the 21st century. The same is true for the School of Construction and the Heavy Equipment/Diesel Program in the College of Technology. Even though the Kansas Technology Center continues to be an impressive facility, some programs have outgrown the space allocated when the KTC was built in 1997.
With the addition of the Doctorate of Nursing in the Irene Ransom Bradley School of Nursing, the growing academic program needs additional space. Architects working with nursing faculty will design an expansion of McPherson Hall to accommodate that growing program.
Through the Proven. Promise. Pitt State. Campaign, Pittsburg State seeks to:
Ensure students have access to modern learning environments through the construction and renovation of campus facilities including a significant addition to and renovation of the Gladys A. Kelce College of Business
Increase the capacity of in-demand academic programming by expanding facilities such as the Irene Ransom Bradley School of Nursing and the School of Construction.
Support the needs of student-athletes and community through the successful completion of the Weede Physical Education Building renovation project.
