Through a visionary strategy that sets in motion clear goals for the future, Ursinus College is embarking on an ambitious campus master plan that will serve as a road map for years to come.
About the Master Plan
The campus master planning process focuses on aligning facilities with the academic mission and vision set forth in the Ursinus strategic plan, and to ensure those facilities will support our academic, residential and athletic programs so that they may fulfill that mission.
Ursinus seeks a bold and innovative master plan that is willing to diverge from conventional master plans and allows the college to align its facilities with the four questions of the core curriculum: What should matter to me? How should we live together? How can we understand the world? What will I do?
In the coming months, two firms, in collaboration with the master planning task force, will hold workshops with the greater campus community to discuss, prioritize and reach consensus regarding potential future projects. The process will conclude with a development framework and a phased action plan for implementation of the envisioned projects.
Ursinus is working in collaboration with The Stone House Group to support the college’s master plan and is currently in the process of completing facilities, energy, infrastructure, and space assessments for the campus.
Two firms will work in unison to help plan and execute the college’s master plan: Hord Coplan Macht and Dober Lidsky Mathey.
