Conference Proceedings

  • The Evolution of a Campus Master Planning Process
    Presenters: Bruce Flye, East Carolina University; Robert J. Thompson, East Carolina University
    The evolution of East Carolina University's campus master planning process over time and its current efforts to link academic programming, anticipated enrollment growth, capacity analyses, and facilities planning will be described in this session. Changes in the maturation of the university, leadership, and the intellectual capacity of the institution to conceptualize its future needs and growth will also be discussed. Attendees will be able to apply the conclusions of this case study to the experiences of their own campuses.
  • A Collegiate Approach To Designing Facilities In Higher Education
    Presenter: Elsa Pena, State University of West Georgia
    Planning and designing buildings for higher education does not have to be an adversarial process. This session will discuss a participatory model where collegiality is emphasized with open lines of communication, clear role definition, and a team approach that includes users, design team, contractor, and administration. Using a "project advocate" who negotiates, advocates and serves as the communication link between all future occupants and the rest of the team is one of the tools utilized by this model that allows successful buildings completed on time, on budget, and meeting the expectations of the users.
  • Coppin State University: An Institution "Of and For Its Community"
    Presenter: Matt A. D'Amico, Design Collective, Inc; Edward C. Kohls, Design Collective Inc.
    Coppin State University is a historically black university focused in liberal arts and sciences, and health and human services. Located in West Baltimore, the University has an inextricable relationship with its community, and a mission that focuses on the needs and aspirations of Baltimore's central city. Coppin, together with the Coppin Heights CDC, has developed a new community revitalization plan. This presentation will review Coppin's role in the community redevelopment efforts, the new 2004 plan and the integration of academic and community programs.
