The Campus Master Plan adopted by the University of Tennessee in 2001 identified long-term strategies to enhance the overall character of the campus and establish a high quality pedestrian-friendly environment. In order to achieve these goals, the Campus Planning Advisory Committee has collaborated with landscape architects from Ross/Fowler, P.C. to develop Site Design Guidelines for a unified campus appearance. The objective of these guidelines is achieved through a consistent and coordinated use of site materials, site furniture and landscaping throughout the campus. The materials in the Site Design Guidelines have been chosen for their classic and timeless appeal, durability, ease of maintenance, and their harmony with existing campus buildings and elements.
