The Campus master plan for Trinity College is both a guide and a tool that can be used strategically in connection with the physical development of the campus over the next twenty-five years. The plan provides guidelines for further campus development, including the location and design of additional buildings, while preserving open spaces, enhancing pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow, and helping the campus engage more directly with the surrounding urban neighborhoods. The plan also will enable the College to utilize campus space effectively in keeping with its mission and help fulfill Trinity's evolving vision of educational excellence in the 21st century.
