Underserved and underrepresented students form a large and rapidly growing portion of student bodies, but current planning practices do not address their needs. This session will help you create meaningful change at your institution to accommodate these students by exploring new practices for social equity in campus planning and building design. Come learn about new engagement and assessment tools that can reveal and remedy disparities that students encounter and use them on your campus to deliver a better experience for marginalized students.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Determine shortfalls in current student engagement and assessment practices for underserved and underrepresented students.
  2. Identify new outreach and engagement tools that are more effective in evaluating the perspectives and needs of underserved and underrepresented students.
  3. Improve data analysis gathered from physical planning outreach to improve programs and facilities, which will enhance the academic and co-curricular experiences of underserved and underrepresented students.
  4. Present issues and solutions for improving the wellbeing of underserved and underrepresented students using clear visual communication tools that will in turn gain buy-in from senior administration and the greater community within your institution.
