As universities grow, the way they foster community needs to adjust. Yale University has responded to campus physical expansion and population growth in ways that can be a model for others. Yale has unified its community with strategic development along its two-mile-long urban campus, strengthening diversity and inclusion while the historically dispersed communities of the residential colleges continue to flourish. We will share methods for managing physical development while adapting and evolving the campus culture.
Learning Outcome 1: Plan strategically for campus growth and physical change.
Learning Outcome 2: Respond to an evolving campus culture through physical planning.
Learning Outcome 3: Adapt campus facilities to changing student needs.
Learning Outcome 4: Apply campus planning initiatives that establish beneficial connections to surrounding urban communities, enhancing and integrating campus edges.
