TUESDAY, JULY 17, 1:40 PM – 2:40 PM Session CN050 in room 209ABC – “The Whole Student: Innovations in Student Heath Center Design”
The University of South Carolina’s (USC) Center for Health and Well-Being is an inclusive environment — accessible, approachable, and responsive to the needs of a rapidly changing and diverse student population. In this session, Jerry Johnson will discuss how USC promotes and supports the entire campus in physical and mental well-being with the understanding that students’ state of health directly impacts learning and retention.

TUESDAY, JULY 17, 1:40 PM – 2:40 PM in room 105AB – “Methods and Tools for Integrating Resilience Into Comprehensive Campus Planning”
Climate risk is no longer abstract and planners must learn how to evaluate climate risks on campuses and within host communities. In this session, Cindy Villarreal will discuss how to access information about natural hazard event risks and gradual climate projections in your campus’s region. By sharing resilience design lessons, we will give you tools for integrating resilience into campus planning and adapting strategies on a campus-wide scale.

MONDAY, JULY 16, 1:55 PM – 2:55 PM in room 105AB – Mark Jolicoeur will be convening the session: “The Future of Campus Building Designs”
Facilities leaders must understand what capital investments will help their institution accomplish its strategic priorities—and which flashy investments aren’t worth the cost. This session explores the design trends that are here to stay in higher education—and how much those trends, such as makerspaces and open-concept offices, are likely to evolve. Learn how to separate fads from trends in higher education design and ensure facilities executives understand which substantial investments will yield ROI for your campus.
