Designing campus environments integrates the efforts of architects, planners, landscape personnel, and administrators. At a symposium on preserving a quality environment, the concepts of planning, building, managing, preserving and questions such as: How can we plan buildings that can be readily adapted to future needs? What is the value of campus planning? What kinds of planning are most likely to be beneficial? and many more, were addressed in formal and informal presentations. Papers included: "Preserving a Quality Environment for Learning" (John Corbally) which outlines the importance of curricular discipline. "Building the University District" (Paul Reinert) examines the relationship between the university and community. "Providing an Ambience for Excellence" (Scott Girard) suggests that environmental spaces are needed to create a supportive climate. "Respecting and Managing a Campus Master Plan" (Thomas Kepple) profiles the role of physical appearance in the college selection process. "Comprehensive Planning for Unpredictable Changes" (Manfred Hegger) analyzes the complexity of improving campuses years after their creation. "Campus Ecology: the College Environment, Learning and Development" (James Banning) examines the impact on students of the environment and efforts to include them in its design. "Growth and Development of the Campus" (Paul Turner) argues for master campus-growth plans. "Milieu Management in College Residence Design and Operation" (Charles Schroeder) contends that students deserve involvement, influence, and investment in building processes. "Laboratory Flexibility" (Karl Obrink) explores the role of flexibility in effective laboratory building design. "Economics of Amenities" (Robert McNulty) probes the political, social, and economic influences on campus aesthetics. "Participatory Campus Planning" (Jerry Finrow) supports community participation in planning and inspects the impact of the physical environment on student participation. (TEJ)
