How Facilities Influence College Selection
The APPA-sponsored study The Impact of Facilities on the Recruitment and Retention of Students tallied responses from more than 16,000 U.S. college and university students who overwhelmingly said their final school selection was greatly influenced by certain facility types and the condition of those facilities. In this section we’ll review that study and discuss its implications on the AEC community.
High-Tech Higher Ed
Changing technology requires a change in thinking when it comes to designing and building higher education facilities. In this section we’ll focus on the strategic approaches some universities are taking when building facilities to accommodate today’s technology that can also be adapted for what’s coming tomorrow.
Blurring the Lines
Colleges and universities are experiencing a migration away from traditional academic, library, and student life facilities, and are heading in the direction of multiuse, 24-hour spaces, and new program concepts required of student-focused campuses.
