Questions & Answers

Why does Pitt need a campus master plan?

A campus master plan serves as a road map for the future of a campus. A good campus plan is responsive to the greater community in which it resides and flexible so that it can accommodate shifting economic conditions, resource needs and academic priorities.

What is the timeline for finalizing the plan?

Our focus now is to host information sessions with community members in October 2018. We hope to have an updated draft plan—one that incorporates stakeholder input—in the weeks following these sessions.

Where can I review the draft campus master plan?

We have posted the current draft plan on this Web site.

What if I have questions or comments? 

We are holding information sessions in October 2018 to answer questions and gather community input on the draft. We are also accepting feedback online.

Who, at the University, is leading the planning process?

The University’s Facilities Management Division, under the direction of the senior vice chancellor for business and operations, is working to develop the draft plan. Facilities Management has hired a leader in university planning, Ayers Saint Gross to help guide this process.

How does this plan fit within the strategic Plan for Pitt?
