Reassessing the Elements of an Inclusive Campus

Join us for a workshop that will help you reimagine your own campus's academic environments through empathy, adopting different perspectives, and identifying elements of inclusion and exclusion.
Abstract: Higher education campuses have changed very little since the post-industrial era despite the diverse and evolving needs of the modern student. As students seek opportunities for interaction and engagement, institutions have a responsibility to not only provide them with knowledge, but a welcoming environment in which to thrive. This session will explore the diverse experiences of students, faculty, and staff on campus and how they correlate with a sense of wellbeing and belonging. Join us for a workshop that will help you reimagine your own campus's academic environments through empathy, adopting different perspectives, and identifying elements of inclusion and exclusion.

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.

Increase Student Participation in Planning to Create More Equitable Spaces

Abstract: Designing equitable spaces is an important part of closing the achievement gap between white students and students of color. Using Critical Race Theory (CRT) in facilities planning is a way to step back, reflect, and look for ways our current environments—and the processes used to create them—hinder or discourage students of color. Students leaders and the project coordinator will share how Portland Community College (PCC) has applied CRT and participatory action research to foreground the leadership and insights of students in campus planning and design.

Learning Spaces of the Future

Personal Learning and Neurodiversity

Abstract: All learners are different. These differences—also known as neurodiversity—impact learning. Fortunately, the design of learning spaces does not have to be one-size-fits-all. We will discuss how learning spaces can be flexible and easily adapted to students' needs across the spectrum of neurodiversity, whether or not they are on the autism spectrum, manage learning disabilities, or have a mental health condition. Come learn how flexible learning space design can improve the experience of all learners.

Assessing Institutional Capacity for Mission-Fulfillment and Student Success

Abstract: Institutions may differ in size, mission, and other factors. What they share in common is the need to holistically serve their students and respond to emerging needs. The Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT) is an online survey that institutions can use to provide actionable data in seven fundamental areas. We'll describe how Pierce College used ICAT to gain insights, identify strengths and areas to bolster, facilitate conversation, and take concrete actions for transformative results. Pierce College is one of 11 community colleges selected nationally as an Achieving the Dream Leader College of Distinction – a national designation awarded to community colleges that have demonstrated results in improving student success and closing achievement gaps. In the past eight years, Pierce College has doubled its 3-year graduation rate as a result of strategic student retention and completion efforts. This year, The Aspen Institute's College Excellence Program has recognized Pierce College as one of the top 10 colleges in the nation.

Higher Ed’s Missing Link

Turning Your Big Data Into Institutional Change

We'll share our metrics-based planning framework—that's producing remarkable outcomes—and explain how you can apply this concept at your institution.
Abstract: Literature points out that big data and analytics (BDA) still fails to positively influence institutional planning—even though it's promoted as a novel approach to improving efficiency and effectiveness. What limits the usefulness of BDA? Researchers point to a lack of conceptual models that translate information into meaningful signals. Nonsense! We're using a metrics-based planning framework that's producing remarkable outcomes. We'll share our framework and how you can apply this concept at your institution.
