In 1998 Wesleyan completed a conceptual plan for campus renewal. The plan puts a premium on adapting and reusing existing spaces. More detailed planning work, followed by renovations, proceeded on individual projects that entailed preservation of historic buildings at the heart of the campus, including the Chapel, '92 Theater, and Clark Hall.

In September 2002, the University hired a master planner, Adam Gross of Ayers Saint Gross in Baltimore, to produce a design for integrating the projects described in the conceptual plan.

Since 2008, the University has invested in Boger Hall, the science facilities, senior housing, the Butterfield, the Allbritton Center, two Cogeneration plants, Fisk Hall, RJ Julia Bookstore, The Digital Media Studio, the Shapiro Writing Center, Citrin Field, the Cross Street Dance Studio, Malcolm X House, and the student maker space at Foss in addition to several other projects.

In December 2014, Wesleyan hired the team of Sasaki Associates and Eastley+Partners to develop a framework to guide campus development over the next 10-15 years.
