The Campus is the Classroom

The momentum for change in higher education has accelerated dramatically. Active learning is happening across the campus, both inside and outside of the formal classroom.

To remain relevant, environments where people learn, work, play, and restore are being designed to meet an increasingly diverse population—evolving teaching, learning styles, and new technologies— empowering your students, faculty, and staff to reach their full potential. The campus is also an integral part of the community, designed to draw in visitors, host events, support area employers, and fuel economic growth.

Get inspired by spaces we’ve created in partnership with a few of our clients. Then explore five space types that every campus should consider to support active learning, whether in person, virtually, or a combination of both.

Optimizing Performance Enriches the Experience

Whether prospective students and families are evaluating academic rigor or extracurricular activities, designed spaces can engage the mind and heart from the first visit to graduation and beyond.
