Targeted Titles & Topics 2022-2023 Series – MARCH

Space & All Its Entanglements

March 27-29, 2023 | UNC Charlotte Marriott Hotel & Conference Center | Charlotte, North Carolina

Coming to every institution is a new way to work that will impact how space needs to change, modify, and/or adapt with a focus on space optimization, thus allowing for a more flexible and cost-effective delivery system.

We will explore such topics as tying campus/master planning to the utilization/condition of space and its optimization; addressing the trends in remote, hybrid, in-person strategies to the deployment of space and the associated policy implications; understanding the growing trends in academia/higher education; considering the use of mobile technologies and the integration of data and digital technologies to accelerate digital transformation; and creating spaces as inviting and welcoming environments for students.  All centered on leveraging the myriad opportunities availed to us post-pandemic.


Recommended Audience: VP/ VCs; AVP/AVCs; Planners; and Directors

• Tie campus/master planning to the utilization of space, its condition, and further optimization;
