At its best, a campus Master Plan outlines what is needed to realize physically a university's strategic plan. A Master Plan's design points guide and confirm that an institution's short-term projects support and work towards its long-term plans and goals.
UTM's Master Plan 2020 is an active process where campus priorities and goals are identified. These will be used to inform future projects and initiatives.
Building on the framework set out in the 2011 UTM Campus Master Plan, the 2020 UTM Campus Master Plan looks to realize the following:
The UTM Campus Master Plan 2020 is both a work in progress and a longer-term project. The expected completion date of this first portion is June 2021.
A Master Plan's first step is to recognize and confirm what changes are needed. The next step, implementation of these changes, is a large and long-term project in itself.
A vital part of this process is collecting and evaluating input from our campus users. Please see the consultation timeline below:
*The evolution of COVID-19 may result in changes to the projected timeline and to the consultation methods used.
Phase 1 includes Stakeholder meetings, the first Campus Consultation session, and a Campus Information Booth*. For the continued safety of its campus users, UTM has pivoted towards a digital and interactive information area in Bang the Table.
Phase 2 continues Stakeholder meetings and will engage them in a Sustainability workshop. Input gathering from Bang the Table continues. The first Indigenous Consultation session is held.
Phase 4 concludes with the remaining Stakeholder meetings, the third Campus Consultation and the second Design Review Committee Presentation. Bang the Table input will also finish during this last phase.
Previous campus Master Plans provide foundations. Previous master plans and some additional resources may be found in the link below.
We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
