A master plan for Tuskegee University is being designed to address the overall organization of campus functions, create a more pedestrian-friendly and immersive collegiate environment and improve infrastructure. “We are reviewing the final draft of the plan, and the final plan document will be presented to the Tuskegee University Board of Trustees in March,” says Jason Fondren, principal planner with KPS Group in Birmingham. Underutilized historic buildings will be renovated. The plan also includes several concepts that are an extension of Tuskegee’s “learning by doing” approach established by Booker T. Washington. Proposals include a solar farm to supply power to campus and a farm program to provide fresh produce to campus dining facilities.
