How to Accommodate Campus Events and Meetings This Fall

Much of the conversation around the return to campus this fall has focused on academic courses. But other events and meetings will also need to be accommodated.

From Volume 49 Number 4 | July–September 2021

Abstract: This article discusses an approach for campus meetings and events, such as study sessions, student group meetings, guest speaker presentations, etc., this coming academic year. It also aims to leverage the discussion about near-term needs to generate a more conceptual and flexible understanding of programming, space use, and virtual interaction within higher education.

The Changing Academic Workspace

In this session, we'll share how to develop a workspace roadmap that uses the lenses of people, space, culture, policy, and technology.
Abstract: Current research shows that 81% of employees want to work in a hybrid model post-pandemic. This presents us with the opportunity to re-imagine how we view the campus workspace and achieve institutional goals. In this session, we'll share how to develop a workspace roadmap that uses the lenses of people, space, culture, policy, and technology. Join us to learn from our process of using data collection, analysis, and consensus building to inform and solve space shortages with increased workspace utilization across campus.

Data-driven Space Strategies for Research-intensive Institutions

In this session, you'll learn multiple techniques—analytical, participatory, and action-oriented—that will help you enroll stakeholders, think strategically, and act more constructively to advance space management approaches at your institution.
Abstract: Higher education planners need new ways to assess current space allocation and portfolio management practices to develop effective solutions that support future-focused research and instruction. Research institutions in particular must continually ask how they can excel and attract top talent while meeting internal, institutional, and system demands for efficiency. In this session, you'll learn multiple techniques—analytical, participatory, and action-oriented—that will help you enroll stakeholders, think strategically, and act more constructively to advance space management approaches at your institution.

2021 Campus Facilities Inventory (CFI) Report

The 2021 Campus Facilities Inventory (CFI) report’s valuable facilities benchmarking data will help college and university leaders understand not only what they have now and how it compares, but also how things might change in the future.
Abstract: As leaders of colleges and universities continue to analyze changes today and plan for the future, the knowledge and insight from the SCUP community is critical. The 2021 Campus Facilities Inventory (CFI) report’s valuable facilities benchmarking data will help college and university leaders understand not only what they have now and how it compares, but also how things might change in the future.

The CFI report consists of three sections that provide a holistic picture of today—while enabling institutions to crowd-source a vision for the future: Current space use data, anticipated changes to space, and qualitative space changes.

Data are reported only in aggregate, protecting the privacy of each institution. Reporting focuses on findings and comparison tables by institution type (i.e., four-year public, four-year private, and two-year public), location (i.e., urban, suburban, rural), and size (i.e., enrollment, ­ 20,000).

Good Academic Planning Is What Happens . . .

. . . When Opportunity Meets with Integration

From Volume 49 Number 3 | April–June 2021

Abstract: The division of Academic Affairs at the University of West Georgia became involved with the Society for College and University Planning and integrated planning over four years ago. The result was slowly integrating academic planning with facilities, accreditation, budget, student affairs, and student success. Just as Thomas Edison was probably not thinking about integrated planning when he was quoted on planning, we had no idea how fruitful our efforts would become. We enhanced and assessed student scheduling, learning spaces, faculty support, and student success and support services in a meaningful way that resulted in positive and measurable outcomes for improving learning and reducing costs.

From Siloed to Sustainable

How the Connected Campus Builds Value and Agility

In this session, you'll learn how to combine digital and physical environments, promote diversity and inclusion, and implement flexibility within campus spaces to prepare your institution for a more blended world.
Abstract: Campus spaces and what they offer play a vital role in student success. By making organizational and operational changes, these spaces can better respond to transformational shifts in higher education. In order to build long-term value and agility in physical campus space, we must connect academia with industry, teaching with research, student affairs with academic affairs, online with on-campus experiences, and capital with operational planning. In this session, you'll learn how to combine digital and physical environments, promote diversity and inclusion, and implement flexibility within campus spaces to prepare your institution for a more blended world.
