To address the needs of a changing student population, institutions must pay more attention to the tacit messages their built environments convey. Campus design, building design, and interior design are under-appreciated contributors to students' sense of belonging and can help support student success. In this session, we will explore how campus leaders can align the messaging of the campus built environment with institutional values and break down barriers to help students feel a sense of belonging, engagement, and community on campus.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explain the impacts of campus design on student wellbeing.
  2. Describe the messages that the campus built environment conveys to students and how they can promote or inhibit a sense of belonging.
  3. Discuss how to align the messages in the built environment with your institutional values to create an environment that supports student success and wellbeing.
  4. Identify the barriers present in the built environment that prevent all students from feeling a sense of belonging, engagement, and community on campus.
