In underserved communities, higher education can visibly and accessibly integrate into a suite of critical community-based programs. In this session, we will discuss how to successfully plan campus facilities that accommodate place-specific educational content for non-traditional and underrepresented students as well as lifelong learning for community members. Come explore our roadmap for success with an increasingly relevant sector of higher education that addresses marginalized communities.
