2022 Campus Plan
College Hall 303
The Gallaudet 2022 Campus Plan is a 10-year update to our existing Facilities Master Plan required by the District of Columbia Zoning Commission. The 2022 Campus Plan articulates the University’s vision and provides guidance for the physical development of campus facilities.
The University Board of Trustees approved the scope and intent of the 2022 Campus Plan during its May 2012 meeting. The University then moved forward with the zoning application with the assistance of consultant teams Stantec, Dangermond Keane Architecture, Symmetra Design, and legal counsel Holland & Knight.
The final 2022 Plan document will consist of multiple volumes that provide the overall illustrative plan as required by the zoning commission. Additionally, the deliverables will provide a 10-year implementation plan to guide capital funding decisions and phasing logistics. The Campus Design Guide will be updated to reflect the priorities outlined in the 2022 Plan.
Led by a Steering Committee consisting of representatives from a cross-section of Gallaudet students, faculty and staff, the 2022 Campus Plan is the culmination of input from the campus community and beyond. Over 15 months, students, faculty, and staff participated in a series of workshops focusing on such topics such as sustainability, academics and research, DeafSpace design concepts and accessibility, and campus life.
In September 2011, an advisory panel from the Urban Land Institute conducted interviews with:
Recommendations resulting from these interviews and other analyses were recently published in a report titled Repositioning the Institution, Renewing the Community.
Last spring, the University conducted several community-based forums and a workshop to encourage public participation and input in the 2022 campus plan. The Gallaudet Community Relations Council has also been involved in the planning process, and additional opportunities for feedback from both internal and external stakeholders will continue to be made available.
The next steps for the 2022 campus plan development include continued meetings with the District Office of Planning and with Ward 5 and Ward 6 stakeholders. A public hearing with the District of Columbia Zoning Commission is expected to occur in late 2012.
