In conjunction with the provisions of TBR Policy Nos. and and applicable requirements, each institution governed by the Tennessee Board of Regents shall have a master plan which addresses facilities for the institution's mission and enrollment growth, land acquisition area, and potential disposals.


  1. Master Plans
    1. Master plans should be reviewed by institution staff at least every two years and must be updated or amended as required. If an institution’s staff believes a master plan may need to be revised, the institution should forward a request to the System Office’s Office of Facility Development (OFD). OFD will assist institutions with obtaining new master plans and master plan amendments and updates and approvals of the same by the Chancellor and other required parties.
    2. New building construction, additions and major maintenance projects should be addressed in the institution’s master plan prior to the institution requesting that funding for such a project be included in the System Office’s capital budget request.
    3. The institution is responsible for funding the costs of consultant services related to master plans from institutional sources.
