Setting the Framework: Campus Planning and Design at the University of Manitoba

Abstract: This presentation will provide an overview of the planning and design strategies that have shaped the Fort Garry Campus over time, and the common themes that these strategies have been centered upon. As we look to the future, Kevin will discuss the work that is being done within the Campus Planning Office collaboratively with campus, community, and Indigenous stakeholders to develop frameworks that support a vison for a vibrant campus landscape, building upon the natural beauty and historic character of the Fort Garry campus, while reflecting the cultural history on which these lands are located.
