Planning with Athletics

Balancing Program Demand with Campus Mission and Culture

This session will help you find athletics facilities solutions that benefit your entire campus community and reinforce your institutional mission through understanding the issues facing athletics and identifying new strategic associations.
Abstract: On many campuses, athletics programs continue to isolate student athletes and create exclusivity of facility use. This can create resentment and division on campus and diminish support from the broader campus community. Athletics' growth and demand for dedicated facilities can challenge institutional principles, but through strategic alliances and planning, you can maximize benefits for your campus community, increase efficiencies, and better engage student athletes. This session will help you find solutions that benefit your entire campus community and reinforce your institutional mission through understanding the issues facing athletics and identifying new strategic associations.

Multi-Scale Transformative Planning Implementation

Master plans are more than a campus-wide tool, and with thoughtful planning and execution, institutions can craft a vision tailored to student needs related to housing, dining, and the co-curricular student experience.

Master plans are more than a campus-wide tool, and with thoughtful planning and execution, institutions can craft a vision tailored to student needs related to housing, dining, and the co-curricular student experience. Using concrete examples, this session will illustrate how student experience-driven planning and creative implementation strategies can bolster student success while using institutional resources more effectively.

Classrooms of the Future in Buildings of the Past

As the university re-evaluates undergraduate learning environments, a pilot classroom in historic Harvard Hall is the springboard for integrated planning and design processes.
Abstract: Challenges with technologies, historical spaces, and resources make it hard to provide the learning spaces new pedagogies require. Harvard University has found a creative solution to these challenges. As the university re-evaluates undergraduate learning environments, a pilot classroom in historic Harvard Hall is the springboard for integrated planning and design processes. We'll discuss our process (including how we used utilization data and stakeholder feedback during decision making), the classroom's design, and how we're using lessons learned to iterate the space.
