Strategic Planning Responses to the Pandemic

In this webinar, Jean Robinson from University of Massachusetts-Lowell and Dave Proulx from Rhode Island School of Design share how their campuses have been planning for this fall, and reflect on the impacts today’s urgent decision making could bring to the future campus.

This is part of the series “Less Talk, More Action: Tactical Topics to Return to Campus.”

Abstract: With the entire academic community scrambling to establish what higher education looks like this fall, planning has been even harder than usual. And yet the pandemic opens opportunities to consider an entirely new set of choices previously unavailable to those guiding their institutions forward.

The drivers for those decisions may or may not be creating a desirable new future.d

Who Guarantees That Your Campus is Safe for Return?

In this webinar, Harvard’s Joseph Allen and John Macomber discussed their new book, Healthy Buildings: How Indoor Spaces Drive Performance and Productivity, and in particular, what are best practices today as organizations think about prudent return.

This is part of the series “Less Talk, More Action: Tactical Topics to Return to Campus.”

Abstract: As we reopen campuses, offices, and stores, to whom do we listen for assurance that the physical environments are indeed reasonably safe? There is guidance, but there are no guarantees. However, it is possible to use objective measures—health performance indicators—to gain and publish a level of confidence in the preparation of spaces and the activities of staff, students, and faculty. In this webinar, Harvard’s Joseph Allen and John Macomber discussed their new book, Healthy Buildings: How Indoor Spaces Drive Performance and Productivity, and in particular, what are best practices today as organizations think about prudent return.
