Planning Types: Campus Planning

Campus spaces and what they offer play a vital role in student success. By making organizational and operational changes, these spaces can better respond to transformational shifts in higher education. In order to build long-term value and agility in physical campus space, we must connect academia with industry, teaching with research, student affairs with academic affairs, online with on-campus experiences, and capital with operational planning. In this session, you'll learn how to combine digital and physical environments, promote diversity and inclusion, and implement flexibility within campus spaces to prepare your institution for a more blended world.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Adapt to technological, economic, and demographic trends reshaping higher education by rethinking how to organize and operate campus spaces as well as balancing digital and physical experiences.
  2. Explain how to achieve maximum space utilization on your campus through better planning, support services, and application of space metrics and data.
  3. Describe how to create inclusive spaces that support diverse and flexible work methods as well as people and well-being.
  4. Network with peers to address common challenges, share best practices, and exchange resources.
