Lesley University's Campus Planning Office coordinates planning, design, documentation, and the management of the university's capital and construction projects. This includes the development and implementation of the university's campus master plan.
Our approach reflects the interwoven nature of its physical fabric. We craft one plan from the three distinct neighborhoods of our campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts—Porter Square (Porter Campus), Harvard Square (South Campus), and in between the two (Doble Campus)—and the many voices that comprise each area. At Lesley, we believe in the power of individuals working together to bring about constructive change. And so we achieve successful planning through collaboration and a spirit of openness.

From a single house at 29 Everett Street in 1909 to an institution comprised of myriad schools and programs on multiple campuses, Lesley University has experienced remarkable growth over its first century.
The Centennial Plan: Lesley University Campus Masterplan charts a course for campus development into Lesley's second century. Developed in close concert with and in support of the university's strategic plan, it is not a "punch list" or "to do" list, but rather a roadmap that sets the strategic framework for campus development and proposes a variety of development options within that framework.
The Centennial Plan is the result of a collaborative process with Dober Lidsky Craig and Associates, Inc. and conversations with the university's deans and faculty, administration, staff, student leaders, friends, and neighbors.
