Seattle University’s Final Compiled Major Institution Master Plan report was completed in March of 2013.


What does SAC, MIMP, TMP and EIS mean?

SAC, MIMP, TMP and EIS are all acronyms frequently used in the Master Planning process.

SAC = Standing Advisory Committee.  The Seattle University MIMP SAC is a representative group of adjacent community members and others who are interested in Seattle University who will advise the University and City of Seattle on matters related to monitoring compliance with the provisions of the adopted master plan for the University.
MIMP = Major Institution Master Plan; A code mandated plan for large institutions.
TMP = Transportation Master Plan; A code mandated plan that mitigates transportation impacts by the institution.
EIS = Environmental Impact Statement; A code mandated statement that identifies and addresses the environmental impact of the institution.


Who can attend SAC meetings?

Everyone may attend Standing Advisory Committee meetings. These meetings are public meetings. Notices for these meetings will be posted by the city.




What is the difference between the Facilities Master Plan and the Major Institution Master Plan?

The Seattle University Facilities Master Plan is an internal planning document that identified potential areas of growth and redevelopment. The Major Institution Master Plan builds on the Facilities Master Plan and applies City codes and process. The Major Institution Master Plan directs the massing, setbacks, heights limits and other issues of the institutional development. 



How do I submit comments?

Comments will be solicited during different parts of the planning process. Where those comments should be directed to may depend on the phase of the planning process.
