Designing for Introverts

Published 2019 SCUP Annual Conference | July 2019
Presented by Chris Cocallas, Mary Elliott, Paul S. Haack, Ron J. Van der Veen

Introverts constitute a large percentage of campus populations, especially in STEM institutions, yet the higher education climate is moving towards an extroverted pedagogy. Much of campus design today is centered on an extroverted conception of engagement and community. How do you design for both personalities? This session will explore the introvert’s voice in creating these shared living and learning environments. Come learn how to plan and design a campus environment that provides a sense of layering—from refuge to public engagement—to address the needs of all students.
