DAVIDSON, NC – The campus master plan is front-and-center in an article that appears in today’s issue of The Davidsonian, the campus newspaper of Davidson College.
In the article Annie Newman, Shepley’s director of planning, discusses how the master plan offers a framework for campus development, developing a physical campus that supports and advances the College’s strategic plan.
Annie brings her team to the campus on November 9 for a series of presentations and discussions with students, faculty, and staff, about master plan concepts, feedback, and new ideas. Shepley hosted a team from Davidson for an in-house master planning charrette in Boston in late October.
