News & AnnouncementsInput Sought on Campus Framework Plan... The draft of the updated Campus Framework Plan is now available online at http://gustavus.edu/campusplan/. The framework plan is the continuation of a planning process that began in the fall of 1994. It involves examining land use patterns, open space networks, circulation systems, utility infrastructure, and then testing and evaluating development options. In the fall of 2001, the College determined there was a need to update the 1995 Framework Plan in response to numerous campus changes during the intervening 7 years. The 2001 Framework Plan update involves the review and input of a steering committee that included students, faculty, administrators, and trustees. The online plan is a condensed version, which was presented to the Board of Trustees for review at its last meeting. Hard copies of this draft document and the full version are on reserve in the library. Comments on the draft plan are encouraged and may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments may also be sent via campus mail to Framework Plan, c/o Physical Plant Department.

The film's national release will occur in May on HBO/Cinemax. The film, which covers Alston's 3-year journey through seminary, deals with the tough question "How can a good God exist when bad things happen?" Inspired by the loss of a friend and seminary classmate who died of AIDS, the film includes the people Alston meets and the multi-faith dialogue that occurs. It investigates what happens to people's beliefs when tragedy strikes. Alston will be on campus to introduce the film and give a "fireside chat" after the viewing. Refreshments will be provided.
