Campus Master Plan

The Campus Master Planning process began in January 2015 with the formation of a committee representing trustees, administrators, faculty, staff and students. The College engaged CREDO, a consulting firm specializing in the development of campus master plans for small, private colleges and universities to assist with this effort.

The resulting 10-year Campus Master Plan was approved by the Board of Trustees in October 2015. It identifies new physical opportunities that provide both definition and adaptability for the Hood College of the future. It is separated into three phases: meeting existing needs while preparing for strategic expansion; planning for and implementing growth; and anticipating long-term strategic priorities.

As a framework, the campus master plan creates additional opportunities for the campus community to plan for the future. Strategic planning will guide that work and will suggest additional areas of attention in academic program planning, strategic enrollment planning and an overall focus on student success. The plan was updated and approved by the Board of Trustees in 2022-23.
