DEAR FRIENDS, I am pleased to present One Campus, the master plan that will guide the College’s physical development during the next decade.


The plan proceeds from a single, but powerful concept: we are one campus, all 358 acres. Not parcels divided by roads and railroads, but one campus united by the enterprise of learning and student development and connected in very real and very visible, accessible ways.

The plan approaches the beauty and utility of our campus holistically. While the implementation of the plan will occur in stages, One Campus calls for a distinct sequence that allows work to begin soon, proceed for a decade or more, and still remain “on plan.”

One Campus is a companion to our strategic plan, Envision 2020. The plan is a product of the community’s shared vision and aspirations. During the past two years, students, faculty, staff, and friends of Lebanon Valley have contributed to and commented on the broad concepts in the plan and many of the details. I am especially grateful to the members of the Campus Master Plan Steering Committee for their dedication to this project. We also relied on an outstanding group of planners, designers, and architects. It would be difficult to overstate our debt to the extraordinary ability and professionalism of the team at Ayers Saint Gross—Adam Gross, Amelle Schultz, Ann Dutton, Amy Cuddy ’06, and Lisa Keith—who collaborated with us during this period of time.

On behalf of the trustees, faculty, students, and staff, I look forward to our work together as we realize the vision of One Campus and a very bright future for Lebanon Valley College. Warmly,

Lewis E. Thayne, Ph.D. President

THE PROJECT

The LVC master plan will guide the College in its continued cultivation of the beauty and functionality of our campus.

One Campus is a flexible plan designed to accommodate potential changes in programs, priorities, and funding. It is a dynamic road map that adapts to the needs of the LVC community as the College evolves over time. Create Connections

Strengthen Edges

Reinforce the Core


While there is much flexibility in implementation, no project should be developed in isolation. Campus design should respect the broad visions outlined in this document. An understanding of campus-wide objectives will allow future work to satisfy pressing needs, while strengthening the campus environment as a whole. In conjunction with the Envision 2020 strategic planning document, this master plan establishes a powerful tool for the College to wield in sustaining the LVC experience in a context of constant change. The plan seeks to establish One Campus, formed from diverse voices and reflective of the College’s core values of celebrating inclusion, collaboration, and engagement.
