2011 Campus Master Plan
The University has been working with architecture and planning firm Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company (Hanbury Evans) during 2010 and 2011 to update the Campus Master Plan. The proposed plan was approved by the Board of Trustees at their meeting in October 2011. The 2011 Campus Master Plan will outline the university’s facility strategies for the next 10 years. See the plan here.
In developing the plan, Hanbury Evans representatives made numerous visits to campus, touring and learning about the campus and Sewanee's needs, holding collaborative workshops, and meeting with the entire Sewanee community. The Master Plan incorporates ideas generated through these on-site workshops, conferences, planning team meetings, presentations and reviews, and analysis of existing campus facilities.
The previous Campus Master Plan was done in 2001 and updated in 2005. The projects proposed in that plan—Humphreys, Gailor, Spencer, and St. Luke’s Halls and the Nabit Art Building, for example—have been completed.
Based on recommendations in the 2011 Campus Master Plan, the University is working with Project for Public Spaces and Celebration Associates to create a framework for the Village’s future growth and development that will reflect the needs and desires of the community, guide development decisions, and maintain Sewanee’s unique character.
