A Survival Guide to Planning and Executing Phased Renovations

Abstract: Renovating campus buildings that are partially occupied is a frequent challenge. Planning and executing an efficient phased renovation optimizes resource use and minimizes disruption. This presentation will focus on lessons learned in three case studies of phased renovations, comprising mid-20th century science and humanities buildings as well as student housing. You will learn about best practices from projects across multiple building types as well as examine planning methodologies, design processes, and technical challenges for broader applicability.

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.

Assessing Institutional Capacity for Mission-Fulfillment and Student Success

Abstract: Institutions may differ in size, mission, and other factors. What they share in common is the need to holistically serve their students and respond to emerging needs. The Institutional Capacity Assessment Tool (ICAT) is an online survey that institutions can use to provide actionable data in seven fundamental areas. We'll describe how Pierce College used ICAT to gain insights, identify strengths and areas to bolster, facilitate conversation, and take concrete actions for transformative results. Pierce College is one of 11 community colleges selected nationally as an Achieving the Dream Leader College of Distinction – a national designation awarded to community colleges that have demonstrated results in improving student success and closing achievement gaps. In the past eight years, Pierce College has doubled its 3-year graduation rate as a result of strategic student retention and completion efforts. This year, The Aspen Institute's College Excellence Program has recognized Pierce College as one of the top 10 colleges in the nation.

Assessing Learning Environments to Improve Utilization

The team will share how they used software tools to assess and improve the utilization of their learning environments.
Abstract: Master planning often assumes "what should we build next?" without looking at how we can better use what we have now. Before its master plan, The University of Puget Sound assessed its learning environments to test how existing buildings could be better utilized or improved. The team will share how they used software tools to assess and improve the utilization of their learning environments.

Boom and Bust

How One Campus Responds to Fluctuations in State Funding

Abstract: The boom-and-bust cycle of North Dakota's economy creates a difficult environment for physical planning. We will examine University of North Dakota's (UND) response to the decline in public funding along with a state mandate to increase space utilization and decrease deferred maintenance, demonstrating how it provided the impetus to focus investment on high impact, transdisciplinary projects. You will learn how compromise in a planning process can help achieve both individual and collective goals as well as contribute to a more holistic university vision.
