Dorm projects a staple of Main Line campus life | Philly

It’s not just a local phenomenon. Loren Rullman of the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) said similar projects are under way around the country.

“The style of living for students has changed considerably,” Rullman said. “There’s technology and gadgets students bring to college now that past infrastructure can’t support.”

 

“This generation of students is different,” added Rullman, who has seen campus life grow at the University of Michigan, where he is the associate vice president for student affairs. “The expectations of parents and students are higher today. Safety is important to parents, and the Millennials are more social and group-oriented.”

andrew mulinge's curator insight, December 8, 2013 10:56 PM

HIstorically black college and universities have provided the means of education for many afirican americna sin the past and in the present as well. One of the main issues that is decreasing retention is the lack of financial support for most students. At prestigious institutions across the world, the alumni is a valuable asset to the success of the students. My concern is where are the alumni from these schools? Given the names of significant alumni at for example Howard, why is it that they are near backrupt? Where is the support? How can we garnish more support for alumni so HBCUs don't become extinct in the next decade?

A Conversation With Susan Whitmer, Education Design Expert

A Conversation With Susan Whitmer, Education Design Expert | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

SCUPer Susan Whitmer, strategic consultant with Herman Miller and SCUP leader, is interviewed this week in The Atlantic. 


"Q: What's something that most people just don't understand about your field?


A: Its complexity. There are so many challenges. Our world is changing at a rapid pace, yet education is mired in hundreds of years of tradition where change occurs at a glacial pace. We cannot continue to go about the business of passive learning in 300-seat lecture halls when the 21st century demands a fully engaged learner. The vastly diverse student population is an additional challenge. The days where the traditional student was 22 years-old no longer exist. Today, students on a campus range from 15-80 years of age. They bring a variety of experiences with them, and often are first-generation and from diverse nationalities. Add to this the challenges of educating all of these students in a less than stellar economy.


Q: What's an emerging trend that you think will shake up your field?


A: We are at a watershed moment in education design. The convergence of knowledge and circumstances provide us with the opportunity to revolutionize the built environment for all of education. There is an increasing body of research from the neurosciences, cognitive sciences, and social sciences that provide us with valuable insights about how people learn. Combine this knowledge with the skill sets required of the 21st-century worker and there is only one thing for us to do: We must create physical and virtual spaces that foster innovation and design thinking across the educational spectrum."

SCUP board member Ken Higa, of Lord, Aeck & Sargent, is a source of this University Business magazine project highlight.

 

"The time frame allowed no room for error, according to Ken Higa, a principal with Lord, Aeck & Sargent. Throughout the project, he adds, the team took time to feature, assess, and anticipate the needs of future students. ...

 

The facility was planned with room to grow in mind. 'We knew the building would [someday] ... be expanded, so we integrated the ability for change into the design,'Higa says. 'We didn’t know exactly what would be needed in 10 years.'"
