Recent shifts in higher education are impacting space, services, and departmental organization. Their roles on campus are changing, the interactions they facilitate are broadening, and how research, teaching, and learning are supported is shifting. Elliot Felix and Sarah Sachs examine six trends reshaping campuses, and how to plan for them: community connections, collaboration, interdisciplinary projects, experiential learning, student wellness, and workplace transformation. They delivers key findings from more than 20 schools of architecture, business, education, engineering, law, and policy initiatives, and they identify best practices for developing densification and expansion plans to compete with peer schools and catch-up to aspirant schools.
