This session will demonstrate new paradigms of classroom design that are being built and evaluated at CSU campuses as prototypes to test hypotheses on factors affecting human learning capacity. Learn how state of the art classroom design yields more effective learning space that can play a significant role in students’ educational experiences and their commitment to academic programs. Hear the results of academic building post-occupancy studies that have identified the physical design and program elements that increase student interest in course content and successfully connect students and faculty to their campus.

As faculty and administrators design new curriculum for student based learning inside the classroom, research has found that the public spaces outside the classrooms are equally significant as catalysts to learning. The gathering spaces between the traditional academic buildings have thus become integral master planning elements in the design of the new learning paradigm. This session will present a series of campus case studies as models for the rich variety of interstitial spaces from bustling student unions to quiet courtyards. Presenters will describe successful in-between spaces, the critical nature they play in campus life, and the importance for planning these spaces within a learning centered university.

This session will examine current and proposed practices of universities to reduce their carbon footprint. Specific actions that can be undertaken by facilities departments to effect change and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions related to facilities will be shared by a panel of experts in sustainable design. Additionally, a landscape designer will describe the use of a ‘greenprint’ to promote healthy inter-relations between the various components that contribute to an ecologically-balanced environment. An overview of legislation affecting sustainable design and construction practices in universities will also be presented, with legal commentary on best practices.

This session will present case studies from two campuses, one embarking on a comprehensive campus wide utility inventory and physical condition assessment of all campus buildings, the other nearing completion on a similar utility master planning effort in support of a strategic plan for utility system upgrades necessary for future construction and campus development. Presenters will demonstrate how utility location and facility condition information is tied to a GIS database, which offers a spatial-based approach to managing capital assets and identifying the connection between present instructional capacity and future academic pedagogy.
