RISD Master Plan
Starting in 2012, the RISD community set out on a master plan process in support of the college’s 2012-2017 Strategic Plan. Rather than taking a 20th century approach to master planning, developing a static list of projects, RISD chose to develop a set of dynamic and responsive tools calibrated to sustain long-term core values, principles and policies. This master plan was designed to persist through future changes in leadership, economic variability, and pedagogical and technological advances. This website provides foundational information about the master plan, its guiding principles, ongoing structures and projects, as well as opportunities to be involved.
