Pitt Institutional Plans

The following institutional plans directly support key elements of the Plan for Pitt.

Campus Master Plan

The University of Pittsburgh’s Campus Master Plan is a flexible framework for future development. It serves as a strategic roadmap for campus-wide renewal and growth while balancing visionary goals with what can be realistically achieved and implemented. The plan represents the culmination and refinement of planning concepts that have been vetted and assessed by a wide group of stakeholders.

Institutional Master Plan

Approved in July 2021, the University of Pittsburgh’s Institutional Master Plan (IMP) is a formal, legally binding document submitted to the City of Pittsburgh by large institutions, providing details related to city regulations, including building height and mass, parking, urban design and neighborhood compatibility. Pitt developed the IMP with extensive input from the community stakeholders, including neighborhood groups, area residents, City Council representatives, other institutions and other relevant stakeholders.

Pitt Sustainability Plan

Established in 2018, the Pitt Sustainability Plan identifies 15 impact areas that help focus the University’s 60+ sustainability goals and key performance indicators for tracking progress over time. These impact areas are organized into the 3 themes: stewardship, exploration and community & culture.

Pitt Climate Action Plan

The first ever Pitt Climate Action Plan (PittCAP) for the University of Pittsburgh’s Pittsburgh campus presents our strategy, approach, and details to achieve carbon neutrality by 2037, the 250th anniversary of our founding.

Pitt Global Plan

Pitt’s goal of fostering a community with a global mindset, outlined in Embracing the World: A Global Plan for Pitt 2025, builds on the University’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. We aim to create a campus culture where every one of us can function effectively and humanely, think and act appropriately, and communicate and work with people across cultures and from different backgrounds. This plan proposes objectives which all schools, units and campuses of the University should advance as part of their broader strategic priorities.
