President Byerly provides an update on facilities planning Twitter
President Alison Byerly sent the following update to the campus community today:
A few months ago, I shared information about a transformative new strategic direction designed to enhance the College’s affordability and distinctiveness by increasing the size of both the student body and faculty over the next six to eight years.
In order to accommodate this planned growth, we will need to make the most efficient use of our existing campus infrastructure as well as add some new facilities. I write now to provide a brief update on campus planning efforts related to the future expansion.
While this sounds like—and is!—a lot of construction, it will take place over many years. With the exception of the ISC, these potential projects are in a preliminary stage of discussion and planning, and we will be seeking input from both the campus and local community as we move forward. More information will be available soon about open meetings we will hold on campus to review these plans and gather feedback. In addition, we will shortly launch a new website describing these facilities projects that will be updated regularly.
We will welcome our returning students and the Class of 2020 in a few short weeks, and we will communicate soon about other plans and events for the coming year. In the meantime, enjoy the remaining days of summer.
