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.

Investing in Existing Residence Halls for Bright Futures

In this session, we'll provide you with practical strategies that you can apply at your institution as you explore the possibilities of renovating existing student housing facilities.

In this session, we'll provide you with practical strategies that you can apply at your institution as you explore the possibilities of renovating existing student housing facilities.

Creating Empathy-Driven Design Collaborations with Virtual Reality

We will demonstrate how we incorporated VR into stakeholder engagement for the University of Virginia's Student Health and Wellness Center to address health outcomes, promote student learning, and collaborate with interdisciplinary partners across campus.
Abstract: Multiple entities within institutions often have competing values, but virtual reality (VR) simulation can help overcome this challenge by creating an accessible platform for building a collective vision. We will demonstrate how we incorporated VR into stakeholder engagement for the University of Virginia's Student Health and Wellness Center to address health outcomes, promote student learning, and collaborate with interdisciplinary partners across campus. Encouraging stakeholders to virtually test a space's impact on health and learning will help you to advance decision-making, leverage diverse expertise, and capture empathy-driven insight to create a more efficient and intelligent design process at your institution.

Speed, Efficiency, and Consensus Through the Collaborative Process

Come learn from our unique approach in which actual users participate in designing an outpatient center on the Nebraska Medical Campus, allowing implementation of new processes and efficiencies known only to medical center staff.
Abstract: A collaborative approach allows building projects to open faster, reduces redesign, increases staff satisfaction, and produces a higher utilization rate than the traditional design process. This session details the collaborative Lean process involving over 100 people that allowed the Lauritzen Outpatient Center on the Nebraska Medical Campus to be completed 1.5 years early with few design changes. Come learn from our unique approach in which actual users participate in designing the facility, allowing implementation of new processes and efficiencies known only to medical center staff.
