Gain an early view of a yearlong study into creating a set of metrics for campus planners and facility designers to assess physical space on campus in support of the strategic planning values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We'll review common themes found in strategic plans across institutional typologies and contributing research and studies on the topic. Student input on belonging, including a student design competition, provide thought starters to institutions in the form of scalable vignettes. The vignettes, alongside a developing list of criteria and metrics around campus environments, including outdoor space, building entries, public study and lounge space, formal instructional environments, research labs, and residence halls, will provide a roadmap for translating diversity, equity, and inclusion from core values and strategic themes to impactful, informed, and authentic physical projects.
