Planning to Plan
Presented by: Thomas G. Nycum, Consulting Principal, studioINSITE; Dennis Rubba, Principal, studioINSITE
A Campus Master Plan or Long Range Development Plan is a document that clearly yet succinctly represents the campus's vision for future development over time. The result comes from a comprehensive/integrated planning process involving as many campus constituents as possible over a realistic time period to insure adequate communication. The speakers will highlight a six (6) step process that includes understanding the campus programs, physical form, financial viability and decision making process to insure future development does not stray from the campus mission. The ideal plan results in a living document that guides future development based on the principles/concepts of the individual campus's mission, vision and goals.

The Role of Strategic Planning
Presented by: Ric Porreca, Senior Vice Chancellor & Chief Financial Officer, University of Colorado Boulder
Higher education is experiencing unprecedented pressures including competition with each other, increased enrollment demands, and dramatic reductions in traditional funding sources. For public higher education, Colorado has been a bellwether state that has seen earlier and deeper cuts in state support that is just now being experienced by other institutions. There has been much discussion of late about a “new reality” for higher education. Strategic planning builds the consensus needed for institutional change to be made. It can foster discussions about new ways of doing business that lead to greater efficiencies, increased space utilization, development of public-public and public-private partnerships, and breaking down traditional institutional silos to create interdisciplinary teaching and research programs. Learn how CU-Boulder has approached its Flagship 2030 Strategic Plan and innovative funding strategies that have been developed to overcome the loss of state revenues and keep the institution moving forward.

Facilities Response to Strategic Planning
Presented by: Dale Braun, Campus Planner, University of Wisconsin-River Falls
Facilities planning requires flexibility and a broad array of skills beyond those traditionally thought of within the facilities planners realm. Learn about the benefits of using integrated planning techniques to help guide your institution into the future. From evidence-based program planning, to application of common planning tools such as SWOT analyses and scenario planning, facilities planners will discover how facilities really matter in the delivery of program.

Implementation and Tactical Planning Through Integration of Plans
Presented by: Duane Boyle, Deputy Director, Installations & University Architect, United States Air Force Academy; Aaron Briggs, Planner and Partner, HB&A; Amy H. Tabor, Director of Facilities Planning, RNL
This presentation will focus on two areas: a facility planning case study and the web based master plan which serves to integrate all planning data into one, user friendly system serving as a decision making tool for Academy administration, organizations, and support staff.
The Case Study: Academy academic buildings encompass approximately 1.7 M square feet of office, class and lab space, with close to 1M SF in one building- Fairchild Hall. Fairchild Hall was designed in the 1950's based on teaching pedagogies and higher education space standards of the day. Facility planning in the 1980’s resulted in a series of major renovations to bring the building up to modern standards. Advancing technologies and the need to reinvent existing buildings has made many of the past renovations dated. The goal of this project is to create a facilities vision and strategic plan for the academic core of the Academy that will carry it forward, matching space use strategies to that mission. To do so, this project considers current space use and conditions, best practices and benchmarks, operational and functional requirements, divisional and departmental programs, research and inter-disciplinary opportunities, cadet experience and support, historical precedent, sustainability mandates and goals, connections within and between academic buildings and the campus context. This holistic approach to the planning effort will serve to establish a reinvigorated and re-imagined academic center for the Academy. This presentation will focus on key steps we've taken in the process to develop this facilities plan.
The Master Plan: The United States Air Force Academy is a prestigious university, one of the big three military academies, a residential community, and a tourist attraction situated in a National Park-like setting on 18,500 acres. In order to coordinate and communicate the different constraints, opportunities, standards, and visions that are relevant to the planning discussion, the Academy has traditionally relied on static printed resources that are quickly obsolete. The goal of the new web-based master plan is to distribute access to all planning-related information through a single web-based platform visible across the Academy. The master plan allows for easy access to and management of the critical planning information, and will allow stakeholders to quickly evaluate planning scenarios, answer questions, and solve problems by leveraging information from detailed studies, outside web sources, GIS mapping, and detailed area plans. This presentation will focus on the design and use of the master plan as a transformative decision making tool.

Campus Tour - Campus Tour: Air Force Academy
After the afternoon panel discussions and networking break, join us on a backstage tour of the Unites States Air Force Academy. Learn about the campus architecture, one of the icons of Modernism and now a National Historic Landmark District due to its planning and design. Hear about the best talent used to plan and design the Academy from its architecture by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, to fashion design of uniforms by Cecil B. DeMille, to site photography by Ansel Adams to the design review board chaired by Eero Saarinen to landscape design by Dan Kiley, and more. A 100 percent design effort! See the Chapel, academic facilities, dorms, and dining facility that can feed up to 5000 cadets in 25 minutes-family style!

Campus Tour - Campus Tour: University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and Colorado College Campus Tour
This tour requires separate registration and a fee of $25.
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs was founded in 1965, at the urging of Hewlett Packard. Their goal was to provide their staff access to public higher education locally. As the University grew, philanthropic-minded citizens continued their support. Much of the 545 acres that are part of today’s campus were donated. The developed portion of the campus is 114 acres; about 1.8 million square feet of facilities have been constructed.
Colorado College is a private school of about 2,000 students, predominantly undergraduate. General William Palmer, who was instrumental in founding Colorado Springs, founded the College in 1874. The College occupies about five city blocks, bounded by the Colorado Springs Downtown on the south, by historic neighborhoods on the east and south, and by Monument Creek on the west. The Colorado College Long Range Development Plan was written to maintain a constant campus enrollment of 2,000 students and embrace the open nature of Colorado and the mountain west.
The UCCS tour will look at undeveloped land for a 4,000-seat arena, a Visual and Performing Arts facility, and the initial facility of a branch medical campus. The Colorado College visit will be a walking tour that essentially follows the outer boundary of the historic campus quadrangle.
