The Claggett Center Board of Trustees is engaged currently in refreshing our strategic vision and master plan of the campus. As part of that process, a design charrette has been planned for Saturday, June 3, 2023 from 10 am to noon.
Charrettes are collaborative decision-making processes that foster outside-the-box outcomes by fueling individual creativity through group engagement. As Claggett imagines its future and the impact on the physical campus, your creative participation and perspective would be most welcomed. The exercise will be led by Canon Scott Slater whose undergraduate degree is in Landscape Architecture.
