What will the University of Illinois at Chicago campus look like in the future? The UIC Master Plan Update: 2018 Implementation Plan builds on the University’s 2010 Master Plan and provides data-driven and inspirational recommendations for the physical development of UIC’s campus over the next ten years. The update provides a framework to guide the construction of new facilities and open-space improvements that will support UIC’s strategic priorities, drive excellence, enhance UIC’s identify, strengthen the student experience and connect the campus with the city of Chicago.
This is the first in a series of programs examining the process of campus planning, needs assessment, project funding and implementation. We seek to explore the latest developments in the large urban university campus master planning, explore resulting impact on local community, economy and diversification of educational opportunities. Join us in a discussion about the urban campus development options, future project typologies, and the challenges of creating academic campus capable of supporting multigenerational students and accommodating diverse learning styles.
