Officials say during the last legislative session MSU was close to receiving $30-million dollars to build a new library.
However, since then, regents say they have identified many other needs, including expanding and upgrading their health sciences program to keep up with growth.
So regents are looking at putting together a strategic master plan before they make their request to the state for funding.
"What we're gonna try to do is present to the state a request for a tuition revenue bond that represents a campus restructuring plan to handle our growth needs and our updating needs," says MSU President Dr. Jesse Rogers.
Dr. Rogers says the strategic plan must be finished and turned in to the state by this summer.
