The TAU Master Plan - Vision and Goals
This plan takes into consideration the University’s needs for the coming decades in accordance with campus development and future trends and changes in learning and research methods
The master plan vision is to create a campus where all study, research and relevant administrative activities can be carried out in pleasant, comfortable and efficient surroundings. This helps make us attractive and competitive with the best universities in the world, and also serves to attract the surrounding community for shared activities in a green and aesthetic environment.
In order to fulfill this vision a new master plan was prepared that will allow for design flexibility beyond the physical aspects of space allocations, as is the case with typical master plans. This plan takes into consideration the University’s needs for the coming decades in accordance with campus development and future trends and changes in learning and research methods.
The goals of the master plan include examining ways, on both physical and organizational levels, to cope with changes in our perception of the space and to propose solutions based on trends and changes in research and teaching. These will enable the continued physical development and construction of buildings and facilities, development of gardens and green environments, and provide transportation access while maintaining the character and qualities of the campus.
Among the master plan’s goals:
- Improve physical conditions for learning, teaching and research, and create an environment that will promote better scientific achievement.
- Create a flexible system of planning the campus physical infrastructure in a way that will accommodate renovations and changes, whether in connection with learning and research or new administrative methods.
- Regulate and streamline the surrounding motorized, foot and two-wheeled transportation networks, parking and public transport, while safeguarding nature areas and green spaces.
- Adapt the campus to accessibility requirements for various types of disabilities, principles of sustainability and safeguarding the environment.
