A Prophet for a New Workplace

The words of Peter Drucker, the sociologist, management thinker and best-selling author, who died at age 95 in 2005, still resonate with anyone in technology. His thinking about the new networked era offers insights into the changing way we work.

Trends Report: New facilities enhance the quality of campus life

Trends Report: New facilities enhance the quality of campus life | Nequivi - Effective Learning Operations | Scoop.it
Institutions of higher learning are investing heavily in new facilities—student unions, dining facilities, residence halls, and the like—that address the non-academic side of campus life.

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, January 25, 2013 7:48 AM

The Higher Education Market Remains Strong— The Chronicle finds that states’ funding is up a bit, mostly. Moody’s doesn’t think much of higher education in 2013. What to think? In “Trends Report: New Facilities enhance the quality of campus life,” Building Design + Construction magazine lines up with The Chronicle, and finds that “for AEC firms, The higher education market remains strong.”

To come to that conclusion they spoke with many SCUP members, some of whom were quoted in the report, such as Kate Diamond, principal with HMC Architects, James Goblirsch, vice president with HGA Architects and Engineers, Craig Hamilton, principal with Cannon Design, David Hatton, vice president with Stantec, John Jokerst, senior vice president with Carter & Associates, Dan Malecha, senior project manager with McGough Construction, and Luke Voiland, architect with Shepley Bulfinch.

This debate is also being shaped by multiple cultural factors. The advent of social media now means that learning can take place anywhere and everywhere, says David Hatton, Vice President in the Philadelphia office of A/E giant Stantec. “There’s out-of-the-classroom, social experience learning in terms of leadership and how students get along with one another.”


Much of a student’s success is tied to socialization and having community space to get to know and interact with peers, says James Goblirsch, AIA, LEED AP, Principal and Vice President at HGA Architects and Engineers, Minneapolis. This change in the nature of higher education is impacting the design of new residence halls, many of which now provide study areas and learning spaces in addition to sleeping quarters.
