The Ecosystem Model: Designing Campus Environments.
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, Boulder, CO.
This document stresses the increasing awareness in higher education of the impact student/environment transactions have upon the quality of educational life and details a model and design process for creating a better fit between educational environments and students. The ecosystem model uses an interdisciplinary approach for the make-up of its design personnel and design process. It requires input, accessibility, and collaboration from all elements of the university. It requires clarity of educational values and objectives, in addition to a consistent monitoring of values and objectives and of causes and effects in student/environment transactions.
