After thorough research and extensive community outreach, TU has drafted its 2020–30 campus master plan, the document that will guide future decision-making regarding on-campus improvements.
For the first time, TU’s master plan is in direct alignment with the university’s strategic plan and its Self-Study for Middle States Re-Accreditation, which ensures a focused and comprehensive vision for the university. The master plan outlines a long-term framework for sustainable development of academic, research and student life buildings as well as landscapes and infrastructure to connect and support them. Some of the major projects envisioned in the plan include updates to core areas of campus and renovated and new infrastructure to support TU’s goal of achieving a Carnegie Classification as an R2 Doctoral University with High Research Activity. The plan also maps out the creation of a North–South Campus Greenway as part of a larger connection between South Campus (SECU Arena, the Auburn House) and downtown Towson and calls for developing and refining the edges of campus to enhance engagement between TU and the surrounding community. While construction timelines and building designs will fluctuate over the years, these renderings demonstrate the transformation taking place on campus now and provide the starting point for imagining the future of TU.
