Learning Resources

Where planning comes together. T​he power of SCUP is its community. We learn from one another, sharing how we’ve achieved success and, maybe more importantly, what we’ve learned from failure. SCUP authors, produces, and curates thousands of resources to help you prepare for the future, overcome challenges, and bring planning together at your college or university.

Isttaniokaksini / Science Commons

University of Lethbridge Virtual Tour

Isttaniokaksini—the Blackfoot name bestowed on the new Science Commons for transdisciplinary science at the University of Lethbridge—means deep knowledge and awareness growing out of the unknown. Planned for many generations into the future, the design creates a highly sustainable, flexible, and supportive platform for discovering solutions to the challenges facing humanity, nature, and the universe.
Abstract: Isttaniokaksini—the Blackfoot name bestowed on the new Science Commons for transdisciplinary science at the University of Lethbridge—means deep knowledge and awareness growing out of the unknown. The new 32,600 SM collaborative science facility is sited in the iconic coulee landscape adjacent to University Hall, one of noted Canadian architect Arthur Erickson’s most iconic works. The architecture of Isttaniokaksini / Science Commons realizes the vision to create the most advanced science building in Canada and an incubator for transdisciplinary discovery. Planned for many generations into the future, the design creates a highly sustainable, flexible, and supportive platform for discovering solutions to the challenges facing humanity, nature, and the universe.

Tour | Wentworth Institute: Center for Engineering, Innovation & Sciences

Join us for a virtual tour of Wentworth Institute’s newest academic building, the Center for Engineering, Innovation & Sciences (CEIS)—its ground-breaking design was serves academic and social needs on campus as well as the wider, local community.
Abstract: Join us for a virtual tour of Wentworth Institute’s newest academic building, the Center for Engineering, Innovation & Sciences (CEIS).

The project team members from upper administration, faculty, the City of Boston, and the architect discuss key priorities ranging from academic and social to campus and the wider city and community, which led to the ground-breaking design. The building opened for classes just over a year before the pandemic hit and the presenters will discuss how the building use shifted to remote and hybrid learning as well as plans going forward.

Smart Building Smart Campus

2019–2020 SCUP Fellow Angela Foss—Research Presentation

The research project by SCUP Fellow Angie Foss was to explore the opportunities to bring online learners virtually into Southern New Hampshire University’s new, state-of-the-art Innovation and Design Education building for their College of Engineering, Technology, and Aeronautics. Her research included the development of two modes of delivery—remote labs and augmented reality/virtual interactions—and she also discusses the impact to the project by the immediate shift to all-remote learning due to COVID-19.
Abstract: SNHU recently built a state-of-the-art engineering facility called the Innovation and Design Education building (IDE), for their College of Engineering, Technology, and Aeronautics (CETA).

The research project by SCUP Fellow Angie Foss was to explore the opportunities to bring online learners virtually into this new physical space to provide rich and meaningful learning experiences for students. Her research included the development of two modes of delivery: remote labs and augmented reality/virtual interactions. Angie's research also includes the impact to the project by the immediate shift to all-remote learning due to COVID-19.

Using Metrics to Maximize the UW-Platteville Engineering Facility

We’ll discuss how we leveraged metrics and space utilization studies to achieve a unifying one-building solution for all engineering programs at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville rather than the original master plan vision for three buildings.
Abstract: Through the use of real-time data, institutions can overcome budgetary constraints for capital projects by maximizing space utilization through shared resource planning and optimization. We’ll discuss how we leveraged metrics and space utilization studies to achieve a unifying one-building solution for all engineering programs at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville rather than the original master plan vision for three buildings. Come learn how data-informed decision making can help you lead a collaborative planning process at your institution to develop multidisciplinary solutions that overcome limited capital dollars.

Rubik’s Cube

Phased New and Renovated Construction for the Sciences

Yale University's new Yale Science Building and its associated renovation projects illustrate how a new facility can integrate under-utilized space, meeting program needs and connecting existing science buildings.
Abstract: A combination of new construction and renovation can optimize space while remedying previous planning problems. Yale University's new Yale Science Building and its associated renovation projects illustrate how a new facility can integrate under-utilized space, meeting program needs and connecting existing science buildings. We'll share the planning methodologies and design processes used in a project this complex, along with technical challenges unique to building and renovating science facilities.

The Innovation Campus

Northeastern University Bridging the Gap to Industry

We will share how Northeastern University developed the Innovation Campus at Burlington, Massachusetts (ICBM) using alternative financing strategies, private partnerships, creatively re-purposed existing facilities.
Abstract: Northeastern University's Innovation Campus at Burlington, Massachusetts (ICBM) leverages university intellectual capital. By partnering faculty and students with the private sector, the university can offer established companies and graduate startups opportunities while securing valuable returns. We will share how Northeastern developed ICBM's campus using alternative financing strategies, private partnerships, creatively re-purposed existing facilities. The result? A satellite campus that supports a range of research needs, moving at the speed of business.

Revitalization

Planning Adaptable Spaces for a Growing Campus Community

We will share how the renovation of The Ohio State University’s Biomedical and Materials Science Engineering Complex’s managed project objectives to achieve the best use of space, phased construction, budget, and sustainability goals.
Abstract: The Ohio State University (OSU) strategically planned and designed research and academic spaces for their growing College of Engineering program. This phased renovation and addition to existing laboratories within a prominent campus core provided OSU with a contextual gateway as well as essential research and academic space to support growing enrollment. We will share how the Biomedical and Materials Science Engineering Complex’s (BMEC) renovation required diligent management of project objectives to achieve the best use of space, phased construction, budget, and sustainability goals for a signature project.

How to Craft a Living, Data-Driven Facilities Master Plan

In this session, you will learn how the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor’s College of Engineering created this responsive master plan that acts more as an interactive set of tools than a static document.
Abstract: If a facilities master plan cannot keep up with rapid change, it becomes just another big book on the shelf. The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor’s (UM) College of Engineering did away with a static master plan in favor of a one that is data-driven and reflects the latest trends in engineering education. In this session, you will learn how UM created this responsive master plan that acts more as an interactive set of tools than a static document.
