Master Planning Update

posted Sep 16, 2014, 7:24 AM by Ann Newman

Progress on the Master Plan continues. An update will be presented to the Board of Trustees in October. There will be several opportunities for the campus community to provide input into the plan. Faculty conversations around pedagogy and learning outcomes and how that may effect space needs have started and will continue as part of the ongoing preparation for accreditation. Open campus meetings with presentations of the draft master plan will be scheduled for late October and early November.

Stay tuned!

Draft Plan endorsed

At the May 16th Board of Trustees meeting, our consultants from DSK presented the draft master plan concepts, which were endorsed by the Board. Over the summer the planning team will be developing project costs, a financial plan, and implementation sequencing for the plan. 

Master Plan Update 5/1/14

posted May 1, 2014, 6:20 AM by Ann Newman

The master plan feedback sessions provided some very good feedback, overwhelmingly positive, on the draft plan. The presentation will be tweaked accordingly with the Core Group and presented to the Board of Trustees in May. 

After the May BOT meeting, we will continue to work internally and with our consultants to further develop cost estimates for projects and build a financial plan for implementation. We will also start sharing our plan with outside constituents - such as the Providence Preservation Society, the city's Planning & Development office, the College Hill Neighborhood Association, Brown University, etc.

In September we will present the further developed plan to the campus for final feedback before presentation to the Board (and hopefully, getting approval) in October 2014.

Charrettes

posted Nov 19, 2013, 9:16 AM by Ann Newman

The charrettes were a great success and many terrific ideas came out of them. Over the next few months our consultants and RISD planing staff will work to consolidate them into 3-4 campus wide frameworks, which we will bring back to the campus community for feedback.
