By 2037, Marshall University hopes to achieve several broader goals including a 100 percent placement rate for graduates, and having zero students graduate with student loan debt, according to a new strategic framework approved by the university. 

The Marshall University Board of Governors approved the MU2023 Master Plan last week that outlines changes the university will make to position itself for success in the future.

The 10-year campus master plan replaces one from 2013 and has a student-first focus to transform the school’s campus. 

Among the plan’s decision principles are the concept of “One Marshall” in the community, as well as a commitment to safety and security through design on campus.

The plan is a living document that is designed to adapt over the next ten years to meet the changing needs of the university.
