This session will showcase best practices for successfully planning and funding higher education facilities to train future workforces, serve the community, leverage curriculum flexibility, and ensure student success, accessibility, and equity. Wake Technical Community College made a bold decision to reorganize its capital improvement plan to address inequality in an underserved population by creating a new future-forward campus. Come find out how you can apply lessons learned and strategies from Wake Tech's inclusive master planning process to successfully respond to opportunities and challenges of diverse enrollment on your campus.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Analyze existing building stock across your campus to investigate cross-disciplinary equity among and between spaces and explore how these spaces serve the needs of students and the community.
  2. Predict future building needs by collaborating with a wide range of stakeholders and relying on a set of clearly-defined design principals.
  3. Discuss how to create and implement capital improvement plans that strategically allocate funds to address inequalities.
  4. Identify programming and technology that meets or exceeds market response for increasing student engagement and success.
