Engaging Faculty and Industry to Increase Workforce Capacity

In this session, you'll learn how you can enhance awareness of untapped populations to meet industry goals, evaluate opportunities to improve growth outcomes, and grow industry sponsorship investment through academic and equipment planning at your institution.
Abstract: Higher education must be observant to remain relevant. Institutional leadership and faculty can help close the workforce capacity gap by making meaningful connections with prospective students, the workforce, and industry partners. Metropolitan Community College (MCC) is changing their pipeline to increase workforce capacity by engaging nontraditional students in addition to re-evaluating academic and physical availability on their campus. In this session, you'll learn how you can enhance awareness of untapped populations to meet industry goals, evaluate opportunities to improve growth outcomes, and grow industry sponsorship investment through academic and equipment planning at your institution.

2019 Annual Conference | July 2019

Align, Support, and Measure Your Institution’s Community Engagement

Abstract: Community engagement can be key to an institution's success, but often it is not strategically driven, aligned with other planning efforts, or appropriately supported and measured. We will discuss how to align community engagement with systems, policies, processes, and practices in an institution. Come learn how to align community engagement efforts with institutional goals (diversity and inclusion, grants and partnerships, student success, and more), how to make sure community engagement is adequately supported, and how to measure the outcomes of your efforts.

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.

Master Planning Engagement Strategies for Underrepresented Students

This session offers new practices that yield social equity in campus planning and building design.
Abstract: Underrepresented students increasingly form the majority of most student bodies, but most built environments are not designed with these students' needs in mind. Why? Because most facilities planning processes do not engage underrepresented students in a way that elicits their experience of the built environment. This session offers new practices that yield social equity in campus planning and building design. You will learn new engagement and assessment tools that you can implement now to reveal and remedy the disparities that underrepresented students encounter in the built environments of the campus.

2019 Annual Conference | July 2019

Increase Student Participation in Planning to Create More Equitable Spaces

Abstract: Designing equitable spaces is an important part of closing the achievement gap between white students and students of color. Using Critical Race Theory (CRT) in facilities planning is a way to step back, reflect, and look for ways our current environments—and the processes used to create them—hinder or discourage students of color. Students leaders and the project coordinator will share how Portland Community College (PCC) has applied CRT and participatory action research to foreground the leadership and insights of students in campus planning and design.

Using Integrated Planning to Respond to Disruption in Higher Education

Abstract: Is higher education experiencing its moment of disruption? If so, what are the forces creating the disruption and how will institutions respond and thrive? We will discuss the change drivers and change barriers in higher education and how integrated planning might help institutions navigate and evolve to understand and navigate these enormous challenges. Institutions that adopt integrated planning can better navigate complex operating environments, bridge disparate and insular institutional subcultures, and combat the resistance to change so common in higher education.

Designing for Introverts

Abstract: Introverts constitute a large percentage of campus populations, especially in STEM institutions, yet the higher education climate is moving towards an extroverted pedagogy. Much of campus design today is centered on an extroverted conception of engagement and community. How do you design for both personalities? This session will explore the introvert’s voice in creating these shared living and learning environments. Come learn how to plan and design a campus environment that provides a sense of layering—from refuge to public engagement—to address the needs of all students.

The Living Community Challenge, Master Planning, and a Bayfront Research Campus

We will demonstrate how we used an LCC-focused master planning process for a bayfront site to integrate facilities conditions, programming, site analyses, impacts of climate change and sea level rise, and net-positive energy and water.
Abstract: This session will discuss how we used the Living Community Challenge (LCC) to frame master planning for San Francisco State University's Romberg Tiburon Campus. LCC is a next-generation approach to sustainable and resilient planning and design, with aggressive energy and water goals. We will demonstrate how we used an LCC-focused master planning process for a bayfront site to integrate facilities conditions, programming, site analyses, impacts of climate change and sea level rise, and net-positive energy and water for more healthy and productive research and learning environment.

Problem-Solving Skills

Identifying and Using Your Team's Creative Strengths

Abstract: A big issue in projects and committees are the conflicts and stalemates that occur when team members don't understand each other's thought processes and decision-making tools. Understanding different ways that people process information and approach problems can help teams work together and get problems solved faster. This session will outline different creative toolsets—specific skill sets and problem-solving approaches – that we all have in our repertoire but often don’t use. Come learn how these tools can bolster your innovation, help you identify and leverage the creative strengths of your teammates and colleagues, and keep your approaches to problem solving fresh.

Assessing and Relocating Administrative Workspaces, On and Off Campus

Abstract: On many campuses, administrative office space has expanded, taking over the center of campus and other areas that would be better served with instructional space. This session will detail The University of Texas at Austin's process for recapturing that space for student or academic use by identifying ideal locations for administrative units. We'll discuss the space utilization study we undertook, how we decided where administrative units should be relocated, and the migration plan to achieve relocations.
