Summer 2017

Sunday, August 6, 2017 -
9:00am to 10:00am

To figure out how the university facilities should evolve in the future, we need to understand how they currently are operating. How efficiently are we using our classrooms? Which classrooms are the best and worst for teaching and learning? How effective are our research institutes and principal investigators? Where are the worst pedestrian/vehicle conflicts? The master planning team has been investigating these and other questions in the spring and summer. We've recently shared that analysis and its implications for the campus mater plan with university leadership.
