Nearly 2,000 students, faculty and staff shared their opinions about S&T’s physical facilities in a survey conducted in December. The results are available online.
A few highlights include:
- Responses from students who use S&T’s fitness center were overwhelmingly very satisfied or satisfied with the fitness center (99% undergraduate students and 96% graduate students). Faculty and staff who use the fitness center also indicated strongly that they are very satisfied or satisfied with the facility (95%).
- Responses about the library varied based on the group. For example, when asked what they would like to see more of in the library, most students chose small group study areas and private study space. For faculty, the most popular response was books, paperbacks and magazines. For staff, the most popular answer was food service.
- Suggested improvements for the Havener Center included adding a dedicated graduate student lounge, more reservable meeting spaces, longer operating hours and adding better furniture.
“Thank you to everyone who took the survey,” says Fred Stone, director of design, construction and space management. “We are analyzing these results and will use the feedback in S&T’s master planning process, which also includes input from an advisory committee of students, faculty and staff.”
The master planning process is led by a steering committee. Stone says campus forums will be held in May to present details about the campus master plan for the next 10 years. The final plan will be presented to the University of Missouri Board of Curators in 2021.
