Three case studies: Programming processes that unite and manage disparate interests in a single building

Single-program buildings are a thing of the past. The new norm is collocating multiple programs in a single building, and the associated challenges of reconciling conflicting priorities, delivering on special requirements and space needs, and managing expectations. Session leaders profile three multidisciplinary building projects and lay out a proven process for building consensus.

Four critical academic spaces, and new strategies that move the needle on student engagement

This session examines new space strategies for four primary academic space types - classrooms, research laboratories, collaboration spaces, and maker spaces - that are upending the status quo and leading the way toward vastly improved student engagement. Charles Kirby and Brian Tucker illustrate evidence-based strategies and facility solutions that deliver opportunities for academic innovation for students across multiple disciplines to engage, learn, collaborate, and invent.

A space reduction and relocation process for higher quality space and better utilization

University of Missouri’s space reduction and strategic relocation plan is reworking their campus to remove outdated buildings and put high-quality facilities and high-value programs where they can have the greatest impact. Gerald Morgan sets out decision-making criteria and action plans to identify high-potential locations, demolish facilities with inadequate infrastructure or large backlog of deferred maintenance, reduce space requirements, and reconstruct competitive facility and technology networks.

The top facility planning considerations for experiential learning

Experiential learning has risen to the forefront of education programs in health sciences, engineering, athletics, robotics, veterinary science, and more, and the pervasive growth of this pedagogy presents a new set of opportunities and challenges for higher education space planning and management. Session leaders examine how simulation-based pedagogy is being driven by the convergence of virtual reality, prototyping, energy efficiency, full-immersion sensory tactics, interdisciplinary approaches, and data harvesting.

The rise of Community Learning Centers (CLCs) in residential facilities: Programming and design strategies for student success

The growing trend to integrate student education within residence halls is accelerating, and this session delivers valuable insights into the programming, design, and operational processes from institutional and student perspectives. Calling upon three case studies of recently completed CLCs, session leaders set out design intentions and metrics, highlight innovative space solutions and features, and provide post-occupancy feedback from all stakeholders.

Facility development processes for high-demand academic programs and enrollment growth

Campus space and facility planning decisions now require a shift in thinking towards buildings, space, and assets that generate revenues through enrollment and add long-term value, and engineering programs are the low-hanging fruit for growth in the near- to long-term future. This session illustrates the process that Southern New Hampshire University embarked on to create a new engineering school and supporting facilities from scratch.
