A Rubric for Campus Heritage Planning
Craig, Charles A.; Fixler, David N.; Kelly, Sarah D.
Planning for Higher Education, v39 n3 p55-70 Apr-Jun 2011
This article is inspired by recent observations, events, and publications, as well as by a general and rising concern for and appreciation of the culture of American historical heritage as manifested on college and university campuses. Among the influences and inspirations for this article are Richard P. Dober's (2005) "Campus Heritage" and the Ford Foundation-sponsored monographs on the topic he prepared early in his career. Dober's work has long advanced campus heritage as a topic of study. "Campus Heritage" catalogs numerous American examples of historic distinction, buildings and campuses that have shaped the collective imagery and consciousness of higher education. This article proposes to extend Dober's scholarly rigor beyond identification and citation toward a study methodology useful to campus planners and institutional stewards. (Contains 9 figures.)
