Managing facilities and planning future expansion has always been a challenge for college leaders. But now with the pandemic changing so much about higher education, how will institutions think about their physical footprint? What efficiencies might they discover in classroom spaces, housing, and offices? With deferred maintenance a constant headache, does remote work and education offer ways to prioritize what facilities get upgraded and when? Is this a unique moment for colleges to consider shrinking their space or at least using it in smarter ways? How will the pandemic affect trends like sustainability efforts that preceded it?
