A campus master plan outlines the future development of a colleges physical facilities that are required to support the schools vision, mission, and strategic goals. FIT's current master plan was completed almost 10 years ago in 2005. Much has changed on campus since then, including technology, culture, industry, curriculum, and how students learn. It is time to evaluate the progress that has been made, to assess current and future needs, and to develop a framework for facilities projects that support the renewed mission and vision of the college and the goals of FIT's refreshed Strategic Plan. The update to the campus master plan will envision the future of FIT and how best to improve the physical campus for all members of the FIT community in the short and long term.
The focus of this master plan update is on the academic buildings. There will be a separate master plan undertaken at a later date that will focus on student residential facilities.
FIT has engaged the design firm Fletcher Thompson Architecture Engineering to provide expertise and to facilitate the master planning process. Patrick Curley, AIA, is leading the process, and will be collaborating closely with the FIT Community through surveys, interviews, and user group meetings with faculty, staff, and students to identify needs and collective priorities. A series of town hall meetings will be held during the beginning, middle, and end of the process to engage all members of the FIT community.
The planning process will also involve reviewing prior planning documents, existing facilities conditions, and standard benchmarks, guidelines and best practices.
The process will be guided by an FIT Steering Committee and an FIT project management team.
