The University of Massachusetts Amherst is a campus of contradictions: large and intimate; cutting-edge and out-of-date; compact and sprawling; lush and sparse; rural and urban. Each of these elements represents strengths and weaknesses as well as challenges and opportunities. The following are the key issues that should be addressed in the Framework Plan:

  • Address the programmatic needs of the University
  • Provide up-to-date facilities
  • Integrate a large campus with overlapping neighborhoods
  • Strengthen campus open spaces
  • Improve campus connections
  • Create a compact and sustainable campus
