Making STEM Spaces the New Campus Hubs for Student Life

Join us to gain a solid understanding of the trends shaping the future of STEM facilities, including a look inside the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's future-forward chemistry building.
Abstract: STEM facilities are quickly catching up to unions as the heart of student life on campus. To better support student recruitment, retention, and success, STEM facilities must provide a mashup of social and academic space that students need for sparking connections, partnerships, and friendships. We'll explore this growing trend and introduce strategies for making STEM facilities hubs for campus life. Join us to gain a solid understanding of the trends shaping the future of STEM facilities, including a look inside the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's future-forward chemistry building.

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).

The Evolving Academic Workplace

Learn current methodologies for effective, function-based workplace planning that eliminate redundancies, break down silos, allow dynamic modes of working, and increase collaboration.
Abstract: The increasing cost and scarcity of real estate are causing universities to think strategically about workplace needs. Adapting new trends in workplace design can position institutions to future-proof space and meet stakeholder expectations. These trends include the use of evidence-based tools that collect data on work modes in order to tailor space that enables maximum productivity and effectiveness. Learn current methodologies for effective, function-based workplace planning that eliminate redundancies, break down silos, allow dynamic modes of working, and increase collaboration.

Canaries in the Demographic Coal Mine

The Impending Enrollment Crash

We'll discuss the demographic decline, institutions already affected, and proactive strategies for addressing it (already undertaken by some).
Abstract: Higher education enrollments have trended downwards for each of the last eight years and are poised to enter a decade-long freefall. This demographic decline will force institutions to confront a new structural reality, including an unprecedented wave of downsizing, mergers, and even closures, but only a handful of institutions have begun to respond proactively. A deeper understanding of the enrollment crash is essential. We'll discuss the demographic decline, institutions already affected, and proactive strategies for addressing it (already undertaken by some).

Cathedral

Being Strategic About Value and Niche in Higher Ed

This session will present the cathedral model as a tool to analyze how our institutions can support lifelong learning, the academic portfolio, and vibrant community outreach.
Abstract: In a time when public perception of higher ed's value is growing more negative, the 'cathedral model' offers a strategic, integrated approach to amplifying an institution's niche value, cultivating a presence and a narrative that resonates beyond campus borders. This session will present the cathedral model as a tool to analyze how our institutions can support lifelong learning, the academic portfolio, and vibrant community outreach. You will gain a fresh perspective on the strategic use of your brand, mission, and physical campus.

Transform Educational Facilities for Innovative Learning and Environmental Stewardship

We'll share recent examples of existing buildings that were transformed for new use and discuss the connection between carbon and building reuse.
Abstract: Campus planners are tasked with creating 21st century learning environments, moving towards carbon neutrality, and repairing buildings that are near the end of their useful lives. Transformative reuse addresses these issues. With creative design and programming, under-utilized campus buildings from all eras can be transformed into sustainable, thriving, innovative learning environments that align with current and future needs. We'll share recent examples of existing buildings that were transformed for new use and discuss the connection between carbon and building reuse.

Designing for Climate Action

We will explore ways that a design thinking process can build a visible culture of sustainability at the hyper-local campus scale and drive climate action across academics, governance, and operations.
Abstract: The global challenge of climate change demands new paradigms of leadership that prioritize interdisciplinary solutions and the voices of marginalized communities. Universities are uniquely situated to lead the way. We will explore ways that a design thinking process can build a visible culture of sustainability at the hyper-local campus scale and drive climate action across academics, governance, and operations. Aligning climate action with existing priorities creates synergies, especially where stakeholders may already be stretched thin. Learn how a design thinking approach facilitates this type of cross-disciplinary work.

Two Community Colleges With Differing but Similar Survival Paths

This session will explore how two community colleges are making both similar and different strategic choices in order to thrive during a very uncertain period in higher education.
Abstract: In this period of declining enrollment, decreasing resources, increasing competition, changing demands, and changing technologies, colleges must be both entrepreneurial and careful in their strategic planning. This session will explore how two community colleges are making both similar and different strategic choices in order to thrive during a very uncertain period in higher education. We will explore how planning processes have produced divergent strategies for navigating the very uncertain waters facing all of higher education, particularly in this region.
