Syracuse University unveiled their draft Campus Framework Monday, and invites campus community members to provide feedback and input through a new interactive website.
Chancellor Kent Syverud announced an interactive website for the plan that encourages engagement and feedback.
“The draft Campus Framework represents the future of Syracuse University,” says Chancellor Syverud. “Innovation happens when the environment supports it. The Campus Framework creates that inspiring environment.”
Key near-term initiatives highlighted in the draft Campus Framework include:
a state-of-the-art health and wellness complex
- a first-of-its-kind academic and research building, dedicated to advancing the lives of veterans and their families
- “smart teaching stations” and other technology driven classroom enhancements
- a vibrant revitalization of the Schine Student Center and Bird Library with collaborative study spaces and increased physical connectivity
- relocation and expansion of undergraduate housing from South Campus to Main Campus.
Members of the campus community are encouraged to review the draft-document and provide feedback and input via the public comment section on CampusFramework.syr.edu, an interactive website aimed at creating continuous dialogue and fostering campus engagement.
Additionally, multiple information sessions will be held in coming months. Look for times/dates/locations to be posted on the Campus Framework website.
The sharing of the draft Campus Framework comes after more than 18 months of campus outreach, in which students, faculty and staff participated in surveys and information sessions.
While the draft Campus Framework is designed as a 20-year roadmap, many projects have been identified as near-term priorities, including: the Classroom Enhancements and Technology Upgrades Project; the National Veterans Resource Complex; the West Campus Project; and the University Place Promenade Project.
