Campus Master Plan

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

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, workshops will be held 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.
