Western Michigan University has the right to its own image and sense of place. It has the right to recognize and develop that which makes it a distinctive, vital entity and, conversely, to respond to the ever-changing tides of its purpose. The evolution of the campus has filled a "scrapbook of change", with a different page of memories for each generation of students. The goals for campus planning at Western Michigan University must include consideration of every student's experiences, assuring that their page in the scrapbook is filled with good experiences and special memories.
