Campus Master Plan

St. John Fisher College (SJFC) worked with Hastings+Chivetta (H+C) through an integrated planning approach to develop a Campus Master Plan that encompasses the College’s existing strategic, academic, and financial plans. These plans align with three central themes found throughout SFJC’s mission and vision: their Basilian Heritage, their liberal arts tradition, and their students.
SJFC had experienced growth across the board – in enrollment, in expanded academic program offerings, and in athletics. Through this Campus Master Plan, the College can continue its trajectory of growth while fulfilling its mission and living out its values each day.

Projects listed in the SJFC Master Plan are intended to respond to campus issues identified during the discovery phase of the project. The sixteen projects are phased into three timelines.
