2021 brings a mix of hope, promise, and complex challenges as colleges and universities navigate the spring semester and plan for reopening.
“That even as we grieved, we grew. That even as we hurt, we hoped. That even as we tired, we tried.”
The Hill We Climb – Amanda Gorman
Following the same format as last year, we will host 4 programs: April 16, April 30, May 14, and June 4.
The series will advance members’ ongoing conversations about the critical issues facing higher education—the financial crisis, racial justice, student success, and new ways of teaching and learning, to name a few. While it is difficult to plan for the future when the present is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous, integrated planning remains the solution. How might the events of 2020 shift our approach to integrated planning to be more nimble, flexible, inclusive, and student-centered?
The series will be comprised of four sessions of engaging conversations to address integrated planning as a practice in multiple scales with specific outcomes.
Support your region and gain valuable visibility while you engage in the conversations that will help institutions face today’s challenges and those to come.

What types of outreach, tactics, and platforms prove most successful in engaging a broad constituency to inform planning, both within the institutions and with the surrounding communities? Join us to discover how you can apply these methods and tools at your institution to positively impact the student, faculty, and community experience.

This session will focus on how changes in academic planning—accelerated in large part due to COVID-19—are resulting in new physical and virtual frameworks for learning. These range from enhanced online platforms to flexible hybrid environments, including the reappropriation and redesign of ‘found spaces,’ such as valuable and underutilized exterior zones on our existing campuses. Join us to discuss what our campuses are planning for the immediate and distant future of teaching and learning.

The pandemic has exposed and added to the vulnerabilities that students face. It has also impacted how institutions serving underrepresented students are working to redefine student support in an evolving campus environment. In this session, we’ll share how institutions have made changes in their metrics, planning and design strategies, and campus facilities that contribute to recruitment, academic growth, and graduation rates. Join us for an interactive discussion about student success strategies and learn new approaches for meeting returning students’ needs, including hybrid learning, flexible learning spaces, and the importance of representation, inclusivity, safety, and wellness.
