When campus space is limited and new construction is undesirable, institutions can transform their existing spaces into flexible and adaptable environments for a long-lasting solution. The Surgical Innovation and Technology Laboratory at the University of Illinois-Chicago demonstrates peak flexibility in its design, enabling users to shift seamlessly between activities, innovations, and industry partners without reconfiguring space layouts. Discover how you can coordinate with students, faculty, and industry leaders to plan flexible spaces in your institution's existing facilities that evolve alongside educational and industry trends.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify existing spaces on campus to transform into new, world-class facilities.
  2. Cooperate with industry partners to provide students and researchers with the latest technology for real-world learning experiences.
  3. Discuss how to create a flexible space that anticipates future technology trends.
  4. Define a project vision for guiding the creation of a facility that meets your institution's needs.
