Diagnosis Studies

Campus Diagnosis Studies

The purpose of diagnosis studies is to record the existing conditions of the campus as they relate to the university's Campus Plan's policies and patterns. Each study contains series of diagnosis maps that depict areas that need fixing and areas that work well. This information aids in decision-making for potential development, as well as helps identify the need for future amendments to the Campus Plan. The principle of diagnosis is one of the six basic principles of the planning process adopted by the university in 1974, known as "The Oregon Experiment", and elaborated upon in the Campus Plan:

"Areas of the campus shall be studied periodically for their health. These diagnostic studies shall enumerate shortcomings and assets contained within the study area. These studies allow for the identification of areas needing repair. This in turn opens possibilities for site repair as part of future construction projects in the area. In this way, individual projects contribute to the improvement of the campus as a whole." (p. 26)
