Presented in collaboration with SCUP and The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to define and redefine the college experience. To ensure the safety of students, faculty, and staff, colleges must rethink their campus spaces and design.

To examine how colleges are continuing to function during this extremely challenging situation, The Chronicle gathered a group of design experts, architects, public-health officials, college leaders, and student affairs officers for this virtual forum. Panelists discussed the lessons learned and how they are applying them to help everyone on campus thrive in spite of the present challenges.

  • How can crowd density and flow in living, dining, educational, and research environments be better controlled?
  • How can colleges create adequate quarantine and recovery areas even as they manage hard-hit budgets?
  • Which changes should be thought of as temporary, and which should be considered an opportunity to better campus life and advance environmental goals long-term?

Recorded October 12, 2020.
