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.

From “What if?” to What’s Next?”

Planning for a Next Generation Business School

In this session, we will explore how to plan a campus ecosystem that connects business with people, ideas, and resources to drive a new research and education model.
Abstract: Societal challenges and opportunities no longer fit in departments. Future success requires business researchers, educators, and students to interconnect across the entire campus and beyond. In this session, we will explore how to plan a campus ecosystem that connects business with people, ideas, and resources to drive a new research and education model. You will learn key strategies and find opportunities—encompassing planning, programming, design process, and lessons learned from building use—to advance your institution's mission and build a framework to implement your initiatives.

How Is My Institution Going to Survive the Coming Demographic Cliff?

Abstract: A sharp, perhaps permanent contraction in the pool of college-aged students has become inescapable. Nearly all institutions could confront wrenching losses in competitiveness, revenue, or both. Yet despite advance warning, few institutions understand what they must do now to remain viable. We will go over two sets of tools that are critical for preparing for the upcoming demographic changes: 1) conducting analyses of institutional vulnerability; and 2) modeling what-if scenarios to shape strategy.

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.

Innovation Ecosystem at Campus Edge

MIT's Kendall Square Initiative

Abstract: As engines of local economies, urban universities often nurture innovation ecosystems beyond campus boundaries, like Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Kendall Square Initiative. We will focus on this vibrant, campus-edge, partnership-driven innovation ecosystem. We'll cover laboratory facilities that combine academic strengths and private partner needs while examining the architectural challenges of urban research buildings. You will learn about the complexities of mixing commercial research buildings, student housing, residential apartments, and active retail street-level spaces to meet the physical and cultural demands of diverse clientele.

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.

Does Roll-Out Matter?

Policy Communication and Operationalization

Abstract: Strategic planning often involves the development of new or revised policies. Policy communication and operationalization can significantly impact morale and strategic plan buy-in and we must consider it in a well-planned and integrated manner in order to produce effective change. This presentation will focus on lessons learned in policy roll-out, and through sharing your own experiences, you will gain an increased understanding of challenges and opportunities in policy roll-out that can inform strategic planning decisions on your campus.

Planning Our Future By Honoring Our Past

Abstract: At Stockton University, demographic and economic challenges have compelled us to interpret our liberal arts heritage for a changing, multi-cultural world. A good strategic plan is inclusive, collaborative, and sustains a school's distinctiveness. Our presentation will explain how to guide an integrated campus change effort while preserving and enhancing institutional values. Effective strategic planning is as much about process as content. This session will explain how the intentional development of both can facilitate a meaningful, achievable plan that drives organizational change.

Problem-Solving Skills

Identifying and Using Your Team's Creative Strengths

Abstract: A big issue in projects and committees are the conflicts and stalemates that occur when team members don't understand each other's thought processes and decision-making tools. Understanding different ways that people process information and approach problems can help teams work together and get problems solved faster. This session will outline different creative toolsets—specific skill sets and problem-solving approaches – that we all have in our repertoire but often don’t use. Come learn how these tools can bolster your innovation, help you identify and leverage the creative strengths of your teammates and colleagues, and keep your approaches to problem solving fresh.

Wellness and Lactation Spaces – the Law, Family Health, and Planning

Abstract: Access to appropriate lactation space is essential for new mothers to participate fully in work and study. Campus planners are positioned to introduce this topic at the beginning stages of new building design or facility renovation. The University of Pennsylvania and SCUP collaborated in a nationwide study to explore lactation policy and facilities in US colleges and universities. We will share results from the study, including user needs along with requirements for evidence-based lactation space design.
