Thank you to everyone who attended!
"[The] ways and means by which the development of campuses can be controlled, so that functional goals can be aesthetically expressed with least compromise to the past, the present, and the future."- Suggesting those ways and means was the objective of your colleague, Dick Dober's, 1963 book, Campus Planning.
In the intervening 60 years, we've seen how wise it was to set that as a goal. We've seen unanticipated challenges, but we've also learned a lot about how to better measure, value, and invest in campus heritage sites, landscapes, and buildings.
We hope you can join us at the SCUP Campus Heritage Symposium, November 3–4, 2011, in Washington DC, as the society brings together renowned experts to discuss the state of campus heritage planning in light of the lessons learned from Getty Foundation-funded research on 85 campuses.
The intimate, one and a half day event is a once-in-a-career event for professionals engaged in planning related to campus heritage. Register early, the event is expected to fill.
