Campus Development and Planning
The College's continual growth requires the development and enhancement of campus facilities and infrastructure. These initiatives, which include New Student Housing and a redesigned Central Campus Commons, help focus the sense of community within Prescott College while maintaining our mission of sustainability and environmental awareness.
Through a collaborative and participatory approach, the development of the projects has required cross-college design teams, focus committees, community meetings and surveys. The college uses both short-term and long-term plans to guide development efforts, including acquisition of property, renovated and new buildings, enhanced and expanded landscaping or grounds improvement, and other campus enhancements.
Campus improvements are well underway. Piles of dirt and gravel are surrounded by potted trees, ready to be planted. Several parking lots are closed and being resurfaced along with storm water bio-swales and retention basins being installed. What is happening on the grounds now is the result of planning that began in 2006, and will continue over the next several years with improved science and computer labs and new classrooms.
