Higher education institutions are learning to do more with less, and this session will show how working and learning remotely can provide the 'extra' space needed to generate revenue and improve efficiencies. From the onset of COVID-19, Moore College has demonstrated how a dense urban campus can adapt to the new normal by transforming common space for maximum use to enhance the creative arts education pedagogy. Join us to discover innovative strategies for modifying space on your campus post-COVID to improve recruitment, retention, and wellbeing.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Engage a team of stakeholders and consultants to foster dialogue to gain new perspectives on facility use.
  2. Develop a plan to survey users and leadership about their facility and space needs.
  3. Identify opportunities for activating unused space.
  4. Explain how to create small and large-scale initiatives for immediate and long-term solutions.
