Drury University Master Plan

Drury University Master Plan


Drury’s new master plan provides an essential, visionary framework to anticipate and accommodate our campus needs over the next 25 to 30 years. It is inspired by Drury’s rich legacy, but designed to carry our mission forward deep into the 21st century.

Dr. Tim Cloyd

Drury’s master plan is a clear vision for the institution’s physical development and evolution, over the next 25 to 30 years. The master plan envisions a fabric of buildings, open space and landscape that are knitted together in a cohesive, legible, attractive, and memorable way. Crafted with extensive input from the Drury and Springfield communities, the plan imagines a future that both preserves and enhances that which defines the Drury campus and experience for generations to come.

The Master Plan of Drury University set out the following guiding principles: to more clearly define Drury’s edges, to establish a hierarchy of open spaces, to articulate major intersections with hardscape, landscape, and wayfinding, to imbue Drury with distinctive character through architectural interventions and to transform Drury Lane into the heart of campus by remaking it into a pedestrian mall. Not meant to be a prescription for exactly what will go where, the plan establishes an ordered yet flexible framework which will guide all future planning and development. It also reflects – in form and function – what makes Drury University unique.
