Campus Framework Open Forums, Fall Construction Information Sessions Announced

As students, faculty and staff return to campus for the start of the fall 2016 semester, Syracuse University today announced an extensive slate of Campus Framework open forums and fall construction information sessions.

The new schedule comes on the heels of a busy summer, during which:

  • the University shared the draft Campus Framework with the campus community for review and feedback and launched campusframework.syr.edu;
  • SHoP Architects was selected to design the National Veterans Resource Complex;
  • more than $9 million was invested in classroom enhancements and technology upgrades;
  • the University Place Promenade project was completed (with the exception of seating installation) and will be open for public use the week of Aug. 22;
  • the Office of Campus Planning, Design and Construction (CPDC) tackled more than 120 individual summer construction projects, including a range of ADA accessibility projects, such as adding more accessible bathrooms, entrances and auditorium seating; and
  • many upgrades were made to facilities across campus to increase access for everyone, including the addition of accessible bathrooms, auditorium seating and entrances, and a ramp along the Promenade to access the gateway sign in front of the Hall of Languages.

The goal of the Campus Framework open forums is to review the draft plan with, and receive input and feedback from, students, faculty and staff. CPDC leaders and members of the Campus Framework Advisory Group will host and facilitate dialogue at the forums. Feedback received from the campus community will help inform the creation of the next draft of the Campus Framework, which will be updated and shared with the community in January 2017.

Please see the September Campus Framework Update.doc. A higher-resolution PDF is also available.
