The Stewardship of Campus Heritage
Audrain, Calvert W.
Planning for Higher Education, v39 n3 p18-35 Apr-Jun 2011
Even as technology and globalization are changing the way one lives and views the world, colleges and universities have become increasingly interested in preserving historic campus buildings and sites. Heritage has become more important to students, faculty, and staff, as well as to alumni, who have often been its prime supporters. This article focuses on the stewardship of a campus's heritage--the preservation, maintenance, and care of heritage buildings and sites. There are several critical components to the stewardship of campus heritage: identifying and designating heritage buildings or sites; creating a campus plan that includes a section on heritage; setting up a systematic process for maintenance that addresses campus heritage issues; developing a process of budgeting for maintenance and recapitalization; and recognizing the larger context of campus heritage, including its impact on local neighborhoods. (Contains 8 figures and 2 notes.)
