Grant to help guide campus preservation

August 12, 2006


The Getty Foundation awarded a $130,000 grant to the Kansas University Endowment Association to create a preservation master plan that will help guide campus landscape and construction decisions into the future.

"This grant will help us inventory and study the campus to determine how best to preserve key elements while moving forward with development," KU Chancellor Robert Hemenway said last month.

The process will involve the work of KU staff, preservation consultants and a steering committee with representatives from such areas as the School of Architecture and Urban Planning, the Campus Historic Preservation Board, the Lawrence-Douglas County Planning Commission and KU's design and construction management.

Those working on the plan will look back on KU's history, exploring the people whose vision changed the landscape and identifying the periods of significance in the development of the campus.
