Updating the Master Plan
USNH policies require a comprehensive long-range plan that will guide the physical development of an institution for 20 or more years. The University System Board of Trustees last adopted a Campus Master Plan for UNH-Durham in 1994. With a new Academic Plan in place, it was time for the University to revisit the principles and development plans put in place in that plan.
As a final product the master plan is a comprehensive development strategy that established goals and objectives and incorporated specific building space needs, transportation improvements, land use requirements, and a landscape master plan.This effort looked not only at the core campus, but all of the outlying University properties in Durham, Lee and Madbury.
The Campus Master Plan update process began in November 2002 and was completed in Fall 2004. The Consultants, under the direction of the Master Plan Steering Committee, led the process which included numerous workshops, public forums, interviews and presentations.
