Emmanuel College’s Institutional Master Plan (IMP) was unanimously approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) on May 15, 2012. This IMP contains a strategic ten-year plan to accommodate student growth, build enhanced academic and research space for its students.
As required by the City of Boston, all institutions, including colleges and hospitals, must file an Institutional Master Plan (IMP) every 10 years. Emmanuel College's IMP, unanimously approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) on May 15, 2012, provides a framework for planning and arrays anticipated changes to the College's campus over the next decade.
The College's previous IMP, filed in 2000, provided a blueprint for Emmanuel to build the campus of today, including the creation of an Endowment Campus (and resulting partnership with Merck Research Laboratories - Boston) and the approval for the building of the Jean Yawkey Center and the Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center.
With the renewed IMP for 2012-2022, Emmanuel is building on the success of the past decade. This plan will allow Emmanuel to enhance and increase residential, academic, student programming and outdoor green space to accommodate a gradual growth in undergraduate enrollment over a 10-year period.
Contemporary apartment-style living spaces will enhance the vibrancy of the College community as Emmanuel enters its second century.
