Master Planning

Our master plan ensures that our environment better serves our mission through innovative programs, collaborative learning and gathering spaces, and state-of-the-art facilities. Across campus, our goal is to incorporate a brighter, more modern design that will inspire creativity, maximize flexibility, and increase attentiveness and awareness.

Completed in Summer 2023:

The Niblock Center for Intentional Living - By upgrading and re-purposing the Founders' Building, we created an innovative space at the true center of campus that fosters connections and builds community. 

Updated Williams Library Discovery Center - By modernizing and reorganizing the library, we created spaces that better serve our students and provide an environment for both collaborative and individual learning. 

What’s Next?

Modern Classrooms and Learning Spaces - Our learning spaces will reflect new research on the role that the classroom environment plays in student learning.

Arts & Athletics
- Ongoing support of arts and athletics will enhance performance for our students and the community at large, including the FCDS Performing Arts Center.
