The master plan for Tulane University will integrate the academic mission of the university with the enhancement of the physical environment.  Simply, the process will allow the university to holistically take inventory of where it is and think strategically about where and how it would like to invest.  Now is the time to think broadly about how the improvement of structure and landscape can complement the university’s goals of collaboration among academic and research disciplines and the enhancement of the student experience.  The result will be an action based strategic plan encompassing programmatic and capital project goals and objectives for the next 10 years and beyond.


With the university’s emphasis on community outreach, interdisciplinary research and collaboration, and improving the undergraduate experience this master plan will be developed to reflect the notion that the city of New Orleans is Tulane’s campus.  Therefore it will focus on the main campuses and larger properties located within the Greater New Orleans area.  This includes the Uptown Campus, Downtown Campus, University Square, River & Coastal Center, Elmwood Campus and the Iris Avenue/Goldring Property.
