Top Story: A
Compass to Guide Campus Renewal
For only the second time in its 131-year
history, Berkeley is creating a comprehensive
master plan to guide future development.
A century ago, architects from around the world
competed to create a master physical plan for a
young institution envisioned as an "Athens of the
West." This time around, the issue is renewal.
"We're an aging campus," Chancellor Berdahl,
late last week, reminded 23 high-level
administrators and others who have agreed to
participate closely in developing the New Century
Plan. "Our newest buildings are as old as the
oldest ones on many other UC campuses. We cannot
sustain our level of excellence without renewing."
