Campus in Transition.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
With growth no longer vigorously propelled by population increase, colleges and universities are forced to examine alternative ways for giving and receiving higher education. Perplexed by a shifting economy and increasingly competitive with each other, American campuses are clearly in transition. In these circumstances, how can colleges and universities plan and design the physical plant for higher education? This document gives an interpretation of demographic factors that will have a long-term influence on higher education, considers some basic ideas that affect academic trends, and then describes some pathfinding concepts. Chapters cover: (1) fiscal crisis; (2) population and college enrollment; (3) programs and people; (4) implications for the physical plant; and (5) eight strategies for the management of space.
