Master Planning Background
Campus Planning is the centerpiece of all facilities improvements at St. Mary's College of Maryland. Over the last two decades, the College has developed a series of master plans and that have resulted in the College doubling the size of its physical plant to support the growth and program needs of Maryland’s Public Honors College. Clearly defined principles and guidelines, established through collaboration with a number of distinguished architects and planners, including Jacquelin Robertson, Peter Bohlin, and Michael Vergason, have served to create a cohesive and architecturally rich setting. The last Campus Facilities Plan, developed in 1999, provided for new academic, administrative, student housing, and recreational facilities. This plan was supplemented in 2000 with the development of the Maryland Heritage Project a joint program of the College and Historic St. Mary's City that advances the scholarship, study, and interpretation of the historical legacy of Maryland's first capital.
