In Drury University’s oldest stone building, the 1906 Chalfant Pipe Organ can be heard. The Stone Chapel stained glass casts a pastel glow about the sanctuary, illuminating the dust throughout the room, which lands softly on the pews. Dr. Earline Moulder sits on the organ’s stool, her hands and feet methodically pumping rhythm through the pipes.

During the days leading up to the holidays, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed with all there is to do:  Gifts to buy, food to prepare, decorating to get done.  But a long-standing tradition in Springfield allows people to take an hour, de-stress and focus on the true meaning of the season.

Drury University has high expectations for the future look and feel of campus as part of its new master plan unveiled Monday.

Students, staff and university officials were on hand for the presentation showcasing the new 25 year strategy which includes new student housing, changes to streets on campus and renovations to existing buildings. Drury partnered with Cooper Robertson, a New York-based architecture and design firm, to develop the plan. Input was also sought from the university and Springfield communities.

Drury University’s president says collective courage in action and in faith among its faculty, staff and students will play a central role in the school’s success.

The message Wednesday came at the inauguration of Dr. Tim Cloyd, who took over as the school’s top administrator 16 months ago. Speaking inside Stone Chapel amongst university officials dressed in full regalia, Cloyd described Drury’s quest to continue its traditional teaching methods while adapting to social change and demand.
