Academic life is closely tied to space and conversations about space reveal much about our priorities and personalities. Having a plan can help facilitate these conversations around a shared vision. We’ll discuss how Purdue University’s culture of continuous planning leverages data, facility information, and design to engage new stakeholders, implement a campus-wide vision, and fast-track decision making. The world of planning is changing, so come learn how creating the right scope to achieve the desired outcomes and inform decision making is critical for establishing a planning continuum on your campus.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Articulate the scope and outcomes desired for each level of planning and understand its role in informing decision making.
  2. Engage the campus and surrounding community in a meaningful way that leads to buy-in and consensus building at every scale.
  3. Explain how to leverage partnerships and commit to a vision to fast-track your project and decision making.
  4. Incorporate strategies to reconcile conflicting information, goals, and decisions between different planning efforts.
