For two years, the Master Plan Steering Committee has engaged the work of updating William & Mary's campus master plan.
The master plan, which was last updated in 2003, provides a directional road map for long-term planning and facilities needs at William & Mary's main campus for the next 20 years.
In addition to the steering committee, nine working groups composed of faculty, students, administrators and staff assisted in the development of the updated master plan. The broader campus community also participated through town hall meetings and other forums.
The working groups focused on 1) academic space needs, 2) student life and auxiliary spaces, 3) athletics and recreation space, 4) architecture and design standards, 5) administrative space, 6) infrastructure and utilities, 7) land use, landscape and ecology, 8) parking and transportation and 9) residential housing.
The master plan is a living document. Some projects in the plan are already included as priorities of William & Mary's six-year capital construction plan submitted to the Commonwealth of Virginia. Other items in the proposed update are not yet in the six-year plan and are considered much more long-term as funding becomes available.
