Ohio University developed an ambitious approach to right-sizing and aligning space to new ways of working. This session will share a variety of tested ideas, including shifting from dedicated offices to unassigned workspace, adding flexible research space, and using portfolio reduction to reinvest in learning spaces. Come learn how to rethink the ways in which campus space functions, deliver future-forward ideas, and express the mission-aligned impacts of changing workspace to gain stakeholder buy-in.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Work with data and analytics to objectively assess your institution's future space needs.
  2. Discuss how to optimize your office space to meet evolving workplace preferences and technology needs.
  3. Calculate the impact of workspace changes to gain stakeholder support and advance your ideas.
  4. Explain how to formulate a space governance strategy to manage your space allocation process and gain stakeholder buy-in.
