The Campus Framework continues to evolve from more than 18 months of campus outreach, in which more than 5,000 students, faculty and staff participated in surveys and more than a dozen information sessions. The Campus Framework’s key themes, vision and overarching goals have been shared with the campus and local community during the last year and a half. Learn more about campus outreach by exploring the interactive timeline below:

April 2017 Construction Update
With the winter weather we experienced in March it is hard to believe spring is here, and our busiest season of construction is right around the corner. The Campus Facilities team is ready to get started, and the first signs of construction will begin in the next month.
This summer we will be completing two multi-year residence hall renovations at Haven and DellPlain halls, and beginning the multi-year renovation of Day Hall. We will also be starting a multi-year classroom improvement project at the Hall of Languages, while also completing classroom and academic space improvements in the Center for Science and Technology, Link Hall, Huntington Hall and Watson Hall. In the area of building renewal, we will be replacing the roof on the Center for Science and Technology, replacing the steps at Hendricks Chapel and continuing multi-year masonry restoration at Crouse College.

March 2017 Construction Update
Thank you to all of those who participated in last week’s Campus Framework Forum. It was a well attended event, and we look forward to ongoing discussions regarding the future of our campus’s physical presence. If you could not attend, a recording of the event is available on the Campus Framework website.
Preparations for summer construction continue, with Commencement quickly approaching. An important part of these preparations is communication. We are currently engaged with a variety of user groups and building occupants across campus that will be involved or will be affected by a proposed project. The next step will be sharing that same information across the whole campus. In the coming weeks, we will be updating our website with the most current information available regarding more than 150 projects. These projects—large and small—will be taking place across campus during the summer break.
For more information on the projects being completed, read the full article here.

Iconic Lincoln Statue on Campus Gets an Upgrade
Abraham Lincoln has watched over the Maxwell School courtyard for nearly half a century. To ensure permanence for this iconic bronze statue’s resting place, the base is getting an upgrade with long-lasting natural stone.The statue—the only recast of artist James Earle Fraser’s “Seated Lincoln”—will be placed atop a new granite base, to replace the current deteriorating concrete base. On Thursday, passersby may have seen workers, with JPW Riggers of Syracuse, carefully lift the 2,700-pound Lincoln from its base using a crane and placing the statue on a wooden framework, where it will rest as the site is prepared and the new stone put in place.
