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.

Campus Public Art

An Investment in Town/Gown Goodwill

Join us for this primer on campus public art. We'll discuss funding, decision making, how public art is an investment, and what can go right (along with what can go wrong).
Abstract: Public art, often mistaken as elitist, can, in fact, embody shared moral commitments to inclusivity, diversity, history, and expression. In academia, public art pressures us to define our campus's moral commitments, both to ourselves and to our communities. In this era of STEM logic, can public art heal the town/gown divide? Join us for this primer on campus public art. We'll discuss funding, decision making, how public art is an investment, and what can go right (along with what can go wrong).

Site Universal Design for an Inclusive Built Environment

We will describe the tenets of universal design, show examples of how it is used on campuses, help you avoid mistakes commonly made when incorporating universal design, and outline universal design maintenance requirements.

Universal design goes well beyond barrier removal, making it an ideal framework for nurturing social and economic benefits through an inclusive built environment. We will describe the tenets of universal design, show examples of how it is used on campuses, help you avoid mistakes commonly made when incorporating universal design, and outline universal design maintenance requirements.

We'll describe the massive Utility Corridor and Roadway Relocation project that transformed the campus and share lessons learned from implementing a master plan—with focus on landscape design, multi-modal access and circulation, sustainability, and new utilities—while maintaining an occupied campus on an environmentally unique oceanside site.
