Yale-NUS College

Yale-NUS College in Singapore developed a model of experiential learning to help students develop the the knowledge and skillset necessary to thrive in fast-paced, multicultural societies. To support this innovative educational experience that blends living and learning, a new campus was designed and built. We'll discuss Yale-NUS's unique educational model, the master planning and programming process for its new campus, and the campus's design. We'll also share lessons learned from designing the first residential and liberal arts college campus in Asia.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Describe how the new Yale-NUS model of experiential learning supports a purpose-designed global common curriculum.
  2. Develop a campus master plan with a clear, visionary mission while hiring faculty and designing a curriculum.
  3. Implement an architecture that can support pedagogy and encourage a broader learning community.
  4. Summarize lessons learned from designing the first residential and liberal arts college in Asia.
