Your Price:
  • With limited financial resources and space constraints, effective use of valuable campus real estate is imperative. Building projects serve more than academic missions on tight urban campuses and campus infrastructure needs must synthesize with academic needs. This session will explore how the University of Pennsylvania is achieving new student learning and research spaces within an infrastructure project. We will share successful innovative business school student learning spaces, operational technologies, and phasing approaches that you can apply to your campus projects.

    Learning Outcome 1: Explain how and when to integrate a campus utility plant and campus improvements within academic building projects.

    Learning Outcome 2: Describe how to maximize program space on a tight site while also building an enclosed loading dock at an active campus pedestrian gateway.

    Learning Outcome 3: Develop strategies for designing active learning spaces and informal collaboration spaces that promote student interaction.

    Learning Outcome 4: Determine how and when to engage faculty, staff and senior leadership in design decisions while managing expectations and accommodating leadership transitions.
