Deconstructing How We Build: Inclusive University Housing

June 15, 2021
Free Webinar | 12:00 PM-1:00 PM Eastern

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts have become some of the most critical imperatives in assessing a campus’ sense of community. It is especially important in student housing where there must be a healthy, safe, and developmentally appropriate environment for residents from different backgrounds to interact and learn from one another. Our panelists of architects and university professionals will speak to planning, designing, and building inclusive spaces and programs that support diverse student identities, and to defining a process that establishes DEI as a core principle.
