A campus plan should reflect an institution’s vision, mission, academic pedagogy, and values. Our collaborative process is informed by diverse voices, guided by the wisdom of campus leadership, grounded in the expertise and stewardship of facilities professionals, and shaped by faculty insight and the passion and energy of students and the campus community. A well-developed plan enables campus leaders to make decisions and investments confident of aligning immediate and long-range needs.
