Guided by the priorities and goals of the Strategic Plan and previous planning efforts, Emory University has commenced a framework plan process that will assist the University in physically translating its academic mission and strategic vision through a data-driven approach. The Framework Plan will be a flexible guide for future development, focusing on the university's needs over the next 30 years, and envisioning how the campus should feel and function. This website will keep you updated on what's happening with the master plan, and how you can get involved!

The framework plan process is organized into three phases:


Engagement, Data Discovery, and Analysis

May to October

The planning team will focus on learning about the campus. Strategies include stakeholder interviews and surveys, review of current/previous planning documentation, and analysis of existing conditions on campus.


10-Year Capital and Financial Planning

November to March

Working closely with the University, the team will develop alternatives that address the needs identified during Phase 1. The conclusion of Phase 2 will be the selection of the preferred alternative and documentation of a final plan and accompanying implementation strategy.


Dynamic Modelling Tool Development

April to October

The planning team will develop a dynamic modeling tool that will enable the university to modify and adapt the plan as needed, to meet future needs and opportunities.

The Framework Plan team will engage the Emory community during the first two phases to gather feedback on the existing campus and on the proposed plan.
