Planning Types: Campus Planning

The pandemic has exposed and added to the vulnerabilities that students face. It has also impacted how institutions serving underrepresented students are working to redefine student support in an evolving campus environment. In this session, we'll share how institutions have made changes in their metrics, planning and design strategies, and campus facilities that contribute to recruitment, academic growth, and graduation rates. Join us for an interactive discussion about student success strategies and learn new approaches for meeting returning students' needs, including hybrid learning, flexible learning spaces, and the importance of representation, inclusivity, safety, and wellness.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Access recent research to inform your planning and design decisions within a national and regional context.
  2. Discuss how you can safely repurpose flexible campus spaces to encourage student success and engagement post-COVID.
  3. Determine which new strategies to apply on your campus that use the physical environment to impact student success, inclusivity, safety, and wellness.
  4. Evaluate different strategies for supporting the success and wellbeing of both in-person and remote students as well as creating staff support teams to encourage cross-discipline collaboration.
