Tyler Murph and Vandana Nayak will present ‘The Importance of Designing Your Campus Around Student Experience’ at the Association of Texas College & University Facilities Professionals Conference in San Antonio, Texas. The role of community college is changing rapidly; it is no longer a path for vocational trades only, but an intersection between k-12 education, higher education, and workforce. In addition, community colleges have become a microcosm of everything you see in a society - diversity, age, culture, and professions - from ages 15 to 50 years. In order to determine how we design for the future, we need to discover how we design around these multi-generational users. Join us as we discuss how and why we designed Greenfield campus for Collin College around student experience rather than traditional departments, and how bridging the gap between K-12 and higher education will transform the future of education.
