Keynote | When a Building is More Than a Building

Join us in an exploration of how leadership at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville plays a key role in creating welcoming campus spaces.
Abstract: We often think of buildings merely as structures that we design, build, and maintain. Yet in truth, these structures are also places that can make occupants feel a sense of belonging and of 'place' within a community that connects people to one another. Campus buildings that foster a sense of place and community can ignite our imaginations for delivering our institutional missions in new and meaningful ways. Join us in an exploration of how leadership at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville plays a key role in creating these welcoming campus spaces.
