For the 2019-2020 Season Kick-Off meeting of the BSA/SCUP College + University Roundtable, we will review developing trends and best practices for planning and design on campus. Join design professionals and other allied professionals in an Open Forum to share slides of a recent or current project demonstrating a developing trend or best practice – either recently completed or on the boards. We will invite a panel of institutional clients and campus-based professionals to provide their review, comments and insights of the issues that are presented, then wrap up with an open discussion for all present. This promises to be an exciting and enlightening presentation and discussion that will provide inspiration for your upcoming design initiatives!
