Wesleyan Community Invited to Explore the Future of Campus

Wesleyan is undertaking a semester-long exploration of the future of campus.  One of the major changes to campus over the last decade has been the construction of the Usdan University Center.

Wesleyan is undertaking a semester-long exploration of the future of campus. One of the major changes to campus over the last decade has been the construction of the Usdan University Center.

Beginning this month, Wesleyan will solicit input from all faculty, staff and students about how they use the physical spaces on campus, and how campus should be optimized in the future.

Wesleyan has engaged Sasaki Associates to assist with this semester-long exploration of campus’ evolution over the next 10 to 15 years. The end result will be a digital report containing a framework and principles with which to create a new master plan. The report will be shared with the campus community and presented to the Board of Trustees in May.

“Wesleyan takes pride in the distinctive residential learning experience it offers,” said President Michael Roth, “and we want to explore how campus should evolve to best support scholarship, creative practice and teaching.”
