Create a Vibrant Destination for Learning Through Integrated Planning
Monday, October 7  | 9:30 - 10:30am | Conference Room B

Campus buildings and spaces must encourage flexible communities of engagement within, across, and beyond traditional disciplines to create a wider range of pathways for student success and faculty growth. We will share how we used integrated facilities planning to prioritize student success, active learning, and a culture of faculty scholarship and collaboration within the campus center’s largest building. Come learn how to implement facility planning and programming strategies at every scale to foster student success, improved space utilization, and new cultures of invention and scholarship on your campus.

Planning for Future Learning: NCA&T Engineering Research and Innovation Complex
Tuesday, October 8 | 10 - 11am | Conference Room A

Interdisciplinary learning thrives when built upon cross-departmental strength. Designing facilities that allow for shared resources and opportunities between disciplines will have a demonstrable impact on future learning, teaching, and research. The session examines integrated planning strategies for creating an interdisciplinary engineering research and innovation facility centered around maker and fabrication spaces, and how future facilities can meet tomorrow’s global challenges.
