Delaware State University, the historically Black educational institution in Dover, has approved a new campus master plan that will govern the growth of the university over the next 20 years. The plan includes immediate needs that it wants to address over the next five years as well as long-range planning for campus building projects.
The immediate priorities are the completion of the Optical Science Center for Applied Research, a project that is already underway. The university also plans to begin soon the construction of a building to house the university’s Early College High School.
Harry L. Williams, president of Delaware State University, stated, “This Campus Master Plan will guide us in infrastructure improvements that will accommodate the projected increases in enrollment, the new academic offerings that will be added, and the University’s commitment to enhance campus life and its educational experience.”
