The Campus Framework plan works in coordination with the University’s Academic Strategic Plan to shape, guide and manage the Syracuse University campus environment and its physical form in support of the University’s mission.

Based on feedback from the University community the following overarching goals for the Campus Framework were identified:

  • Support Academic Excellence: Strengthen the global legacy of learning and investigation by creating 21st century academic and research environments across the University.
  • Enrich All Aspects of Student Life: Foster student success through a holistic residential experience, engaging student life centers, a comprehensive academic and administrative support network, and a diverse array of health and wellness offerings.
  • Create a Vibrant Campus Setting: Continue to enrich the environment with high-quality place-making, buildings and landscapes, distinguished by design excellence.

Additional opportunities for community feedback will be made available throughout the summer.
