Welcome to the Campus Master Plan Blog!


What’s Going On?

Dalhousie is in the process of developing a Campus Master Plan. The plan will guide the future development of Dalhousie for many years to come. Information on the process can be found on the main Campus Plan page.

The first Progress Report was released in March 2009 and covers the expectations and themes that will shape Dalhousie’s future. The second Progress Report will be released this fall and will outline strategies for implementing the Campus Master Plan.

So, What About The Blog?

A Campus Plan must meet the needs of the entire University community. This means we want to hear from you. This blog was created as a way to ask questions and find out what you think. What does Dal mean to you?  What do you think is important for the future of Dal?  What should Dal’s campus look like in the future?

And You Are?

My name is Laura Masching and I am a Facilities Management employee here at Dal.  I will be updating this blog on a regular basis and responding to any comments or questions.  You can reach me at
