Priority Initiatives

Syracuse University’s Campus Framework was released in May 2017 and established a 20-year vision to re-shape the physical environment of the campus. At the time of the report’s release, four capital projects were identified as cornerstones of the effort to reimagine the campus environment. Work on those projects began immediately and has continued in the intervening years. As further priority projects are identified, they will be added to this page.
