The Daemen college faciliTies masTer plan | 2015 – 2020 seCTion one: inTroduCTion The 2015 - 2020 Daemen college campus facilities master plan was developed by students, faculty, administrators, alumni, trustees and other stakeholders of the college. The facilities master plan committee sought input from the campus community, studied the campus and its uses, and provided thoughtful insights to the report. The entire Daemen college community had the opportunity to comment on the report at open forums and through on-line discussions. This report updates the 1999 and 2006 campus facilities master plans and is coordinated with the college’s 2006 and 2012 strategic plans and the college’s annual operating Budgets. at Daemen college, we understand that student and employee satisfaction are derived from facilities and grounds conducive to teaching and learning. architectural design and campus planning are both recognized as integral components of the overall campus planning process, which is driven by the priorities and academic purposes of the institution. These values are defined in the mission statement on the next page. BUILDING A CAMPUS FOR THE FUTURE | page 4

This integration which recognizes equal value in liberal studies and professional programs aims at preparing graduates who are dedicated to the health and well-being of both their local and global communities. With a Daemen education, students will acquire the skills to solve problems creatively and think critically. They will be comfortable with diversity and will recognize the importance of a global perspective. They will be able to work with others and be invigorated by environments that present challenges and demand innovation. Daemen students are expected to be active participants in their own education and informed citizens who understand that learning is a life-long journey. at the heart of Daemen's integrated learning experience is the relationship that can develop between the college's faculty and its students. Daemen prides itself on maintaining a student-centered atmosphere and a close professional and collaborative association among all members of the college community. assisted by a supportive faculty, Daemen students are encouraged to pursue goals beyond their initial expectations, to respond to academic challenges, and to develop habits of mind that enrich their lives and their community. 1.3 valueS and viSion of daeMen college VALUES The faculty, staff, and students of the Daemen college community value • a diversity of ideas, backgrounds, and beliefs • a student-centered atmosphere • holistic/experiential learning • advanced information literacy • rigorous critical thinking and creative problem solving • effective communication skills • keen moral and ethical discernment • acute affective awareness • informed civic engagement • an understanding of the role of context • intellectual rigor • local and global responsibility • professional preparation BUILDING A CAMPUS FOR THE FUTURE | page 5

The Daemen college faciliTies masTer plan | 2015 – 2020 seCTion one: inTroduCTion 1.4 purpoSe of the 2015 – 2020 facilitieS MaSter plan The 2015 – 2020 campus facilities master plan of Daemen college was undertaken as an update and looks forward from the one developed in 2006. it is designed to play a major role in providing our campus community with continued improvements of facilities and grounds that contribute to the accomplishment of the college’s mission, so as to enhance the quality of life for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. in the college’s strategic plan (2012), a key initiative focuses on campus facilities, aesthetics, and sustainability. This encompasses renovations, acquisitions, general aesthetics, and improvements on usage. as stated in the plan, it is important that attention is paid to, “maximizing use of classroom space on the main campus by configuring this space to complement and support contemporary pedagogies.” The focus does not rest solely on academic space but also on athletic space, general green space, and new acquisitions. facilities planning must be a continuing process that involves identification of needs, implementation of projects, ongoing management of the physical plant, and satisfaction of needs. a major goal of the facilities master plan committee was to provide supportive settings for formal, as well as informal, learning experiences. During the planning process, the committee recognized that the best settings for learning stimulate self-reflection, critical questioning, and intellectual discovery. every intellectually curious person should be challenged to seek increasingly deeper insights into the nature and interrelationships of the college’s core competencies, which are ever-present in all academic disciplines. The committee also proceeded from an understanding that learning is not limited to formal gatherings in classrooms, auditoriums, and laboratories. it takes place everywhere on a college campus. some of the most productive learning experiences are interdisciplinary exchanges that occur when they are neither anticipated nor planned.
