Execution of Lycoming College’s 2014 Strategic Plan included numerous improvements to the College’s physical plant. Six residential halls were renovated, improvements were made to classrooms and laboratories in the Academic Center and the Heim Science Building, and new construction strengthened Lycoming’s STEM programs with the Lynn Science Center and created a new arrival sequence for campus with the Krapf Gateway Center.

The 2021 Strategic Plan, recently approved by the Board of Trustees, calls for additional improvements to the College’s physical plant with a prioritization of projects that will strengthen recruitment and enhance institutional reputation. Several specific initiatives in this space are already underway (see the Capital Projects Update below). In addition, a campus working group is being formed with the following charge:

Develop a next-phase campus masterplan that addresses, among other items: residential facilities that have not been renovated, the Lamade Gymnasium, the proposal for a Makerspace, the possibility of a facility for Esports, and other needs that may emerge.

Chip Edmonds, Ed.D., executive vice president, will lead a working group that will produce a report for President Trachte and the Board of Trustees. The working group will be representative of the campus community and will consider input from alumni, students, and parents when evaluating existing facilities and generating ideas that will inform the masterplan. If you have questions about the process or would like to share your views on Lycoming’s future physical plant needs, contact Edmonds at
