Transforming Medical Center Pandemic Responses into Creative Community Partnerships

Join us to discover how you can apply academic medical center (AMC) pandemic responses for long-term best practices at your institution.
Abstract: Creative emergency response activities and fledgling partnerships within academic medical center (AMC) campuses and communities have broken down institutional, municipal, healthcare, and corporate silos to improve public health and quality of life.

2019 Annual Conference | July 2019

Master Planning Engagement Strategies for Underrepresented Students

This session offers new practices that yield social equity in campus planning and building design.
Abstract: Underrepresented students increasingly form the majority of most student bodies, but most built environments are not designed with these students' needs in mind. Why? Because most facilities planning processes do not engage underrepresented students in a way that elicits their experience of the built environment. This session offers new practices that yield social equity in campus planning and building design. You will learn new engagement and assessment tools that you can implement now to reveal and remedy the disparities that underrepresented students encounter in the built environments of the campus.
