Supporting the Whole Student

New Models for Integrated Learning Centers

In this session, we’ll share how the College of Marin and Chabot College's integrated learning centers are serving changing student populations using an inclusive library design approach.
Abstract: Even as 'non-traditional' students become the norm at community colleges, too many campus spaces and services fail to meet their needs. Inclusive engagement strategies can help ensure that we design for today's students. We'll share how the College of Marin and Chabot College's integrated learning centers are serving changing student populations using an inclusive library design approach. You'll learn how incorporating inclusive engagement and outreach in your planning process can result in facilities that allow students to better navigate the 'hidden curriculum' of college life and strengthen campus cohesion.

SCUP Fellow Presentation | Peripheral Vision

Planning and Designing Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive Learning Environments

Gain an early view of a yearlong study into creating a set of metrics for campus planners and facility designers to assess physical space on campus in support of the strategic planning values of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Abstract: Gain an early view of a yearlong study into creating a set of metrics for campus planners and facility designers to assess physical space on campus in support of the strategic planning values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We'll review common themes found in strategic plans across institutional typologies and contributing research and studies on the topic. Student input on belonging, including a student design competition, provide thought starters to institutions in the form of scalable vignettes. The vignettes, alongside a developing list of criteria and metrics around campus environments, including outdoor space, building entries, public study and lounge space, formal instructional environments, research labs, and residence halls, will provide a roadmap for translating diversity, equity, and inclusion from core values and strategic themes to impactful, informed, and authentic physical projects.

Vision to Reality

Reshaping Institutional Models for Underserved Populations

Come learn how you can translate institutional values of access and equity into resilient physical planning strategies that will help your institution support underserved students in a time of crisis.
Abstract: New learner-centered tools must emphasize collaboration and scalability as higher education responds to a worldwide health crisis and social unrest sparked by inequity. This session will illustrate how the needs of traditionally underserved students are reshaping higher education delivery, now more than ever due to increased virtual learning and loss of campus space. We'll share how we're learning as we go, implementing innovative, resource-conscious, and practical solutions to urgent challenges. Come learn how you can translate institutional values of access and equity into resilient physical planning strategies that will help your institution support underserved students in a time of crisis.

Campus-Wide Accessibility in Long-Term Planning and COVID-19 Response

This session will discuss successful strategies for accessibility planning—both long-term and during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Abstract: How accessible is your campus? How accessible will it be during its COVID-19 operations? Campus-wide accessibility has a profound impact on student experience, yet institutions of higher education often struggle to provide accessible environments. This session will discuss successful strategies for accessibility planning—both long-term and during the COVID-19 pandemic. We'll discuss how to approach COVID-19 social distancing strategies in terms of program and spatial access, and key accessibility requirements to keep in mind when adapting different facilities types (residence halls, dining facilities, classrooms, etc).

Universal Design in the Age of COVID-19

Changes Are Demanding That Campuses Include All Learners

Demographics on campuses have changed, expectations for accessibility have increased, and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need to provide inclusive experiences for all learners. Thirty years after the ADA was signed into law, much has been achieved; however, there is more to be accomplished at colleges and universities if we are to provide inclusive experiences for all learners. A renewed approach to campus planning and design, informed by the principles of Universal Design and Universal Design for Learning, and with a commitment to delivering hybridized online and in-person models of educational delivery, is needed now.

From Volume 48 Number 4 | July–September 2020

Abstract: In context of COVID-19, institutions are developing new approaches to online learning at an unprecedented pace. Looking ahead, this great experiment may offer lessons for broadening the definition of accessibility. Three decades after the Americans with Disabilities Act established minimum accessibility standards for the built environment, this moment of accelerated change presents a unique opportunity to utilize hybrid delivery models and universal design principles to rethink accessibility. Sasaki principal Greg Havens examines how continued emphasis on improvements to the physical environment, when combined with hybrid learning and services, could transform the way we plan the human-centered, accessible campuses of tomorrow.

Site Universal Design for an Inclusive Built Environment

We will describe the tenets of universal design, show examples of how it is used on campuses, help you avoid mistakes commonly made when incorporating universal design, and outline universal design maintenance requirements.
Abstract: The university community is more diverse in age and ability than ever. We need to design built environments that acknowledge and celebrate that reality. Universal design goes well beyond barrier removal, making it an ideal framework for nurturing social and economic benefits through an inclusive built environment. We will describe the tenets of universal design, show examples of how it is used on campuses, help you avoid mistakes commonly made when incorporating universal design, and outline universal design maintenance requirements.
