Abstract: The jobs that power our economy are evolving daily and educational facilities must keep ahead of workforce demands in order to stay relevant to the students they serve. This is especially true for community colleges with vocational curricula, which have historically helped to lead communities out of recessions.

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.

Strategic Planning at the Division Level

Abstract: Planning for a division within a university can be difficult; you must align to the larger institutional plan while also considering your division's unique mission and challenges. This session will describe the strategic planning process for a college within a university. We'll describe how we included more than 500 stakeholders, discussed enrollment declines and the upcoming demographic changes that will impact most colleges, and how we focused the plan on mission and innovation. You will leave with a blueprint for the planning process we used, from self study to training facilitators to final plan release.

Facility Data Drives Funding and $450 Million Capital Program

Abstract: Tracking and communicating data in a compelling way can make big, positive changes in how the facility inventory is managed, from annual maintenance to capital expenditures. We will describe how the Alamo Colleges uses principles of asset management to increase facilities funding from $1.3 to $18.5 million over 10 years and to pass a $450 million bond program in 2017. We will cover how we planned and organized a facilities inventory, using the data to determine funding priorities, and methods for helping stakeholders make decisions.

Moving Forward When Others Are Moving Backward

Abstract: Do you remember the last time you planned a comprehensive project and everyone was with you? Oh—never? Leaders in higher education work with the brightest, most sophisticated workforce in the world. Regardless of your goals, you know that some are going to challenge almost any effort that may involve that [honorary] four-letter word: CHANGE. This presentation from the author of Dealing with Dysfunction: A Book for University Leaders provides some discussion and sharing of ideas on how to handle challenging personnel as you attempt to work within a positive culture.

A Survival Guide to Planning and Executing Phased Renovations

Abstract: Renovating campus buildings that are partially occupied is a frequent challenge. Planning and executing an efficient phased renovation optimizes resource use and minimizes disruption. This presentation will focus on lessons learned in three case studies of phased renovations, comprising mid-20th century science and humanities buildings as well as student housing. You will learn about best practices from projects across multiple building types as well as examine planning methodologies, design processes, and technical challenges for broader applicability.

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.

Your Resources

Put Them Where They Will Do the Most Good

This session focuses on the need to employ a coordinated and aligned approach to planning, resource allocation, and assessment.
Abstract: Higher education’s resource situation is not good and is not expected to get better in the foreseeable future. Elite and wealthy institutions are relatively immune to these pressures, but the overwhelming majority of other institutions are continually struggling to match resources to mission. Several actions, though difficult and painful, would help reduce the gap between available resources and those needed to meet stakeholders’ needs. This session focuses on the need to employ a coordinated and aligned approach to planning, resource allocation, and assessment. It goes on to describe a proven practice for utilizing all three to match resources to mission—strategic resource allocation. Finally, it offers suggestions for initiating the conversation on your campus.

Planning and Budget Alignment

Put the Annual Plan in the Driver's Seat

This session will illustrate how to establish a thorough process that builds strong annual plans, which drive a transparent and fully-inclusive budget process for improved campus engagement in strategic planning. You will gain tools to develop a planning and budget alignment process at your institution that is data-informed, inclusive, transparent, and aligns with accreditation standards.

Strategic Scheduling to Stay Within Budget

Abstract: Course schedules are often "rolled over" without understanding their impact on instructional budgets. Real-time scheduling and budget data allows for strategic decisions that balance student needs with institutional capacity. This session will demonstrate a process to develop a strategic scheduling and budget plan and make real-time, data-informed schedule adjustments that support institutional, departmental, and program budget goals. You will learn how to develop planning strategies that align scheduling with budget goals and how to make day-to-day decisions that maximize your ability to meet student needs.
