Appendix 1

List of Campus Plans

with University Regents/Presidents and Chancellors

      This chronological inventory of campus plans from 1871 to 2015 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign broadly construes what a "plan" is.

       It lists formal plans—some accepted, endorsed, or adopted/approved by the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, some not. It includes studies and sketches that found their way into larger plans, or didn't. It includes plans limited to athletics, the research park, traffic issues, or retail assessments of the near-campus neighborhoods.

       The eighty-six plans cited represent fervid or barren periods of campus planning. Between January 19, 1912, and March 18, 1912, for example, six plans were developed, while there was no visible planning for fully fifteen years beginning in 1971.

       Many of the plans are digitized and available to view on campus Web sites.
