Join our team at this year’s Society for College and University Planning Pacific 2023 Regional Conference in Davis, CA.

Principal and Higher Education Leader Leigh Anne Jones, AIA, LEED AP BD+C and Senior Associate and Architect Catherine Meng, AIA, will be presenting a session titled, “Translating Equity & Inclusion Goals into Welcoming Student Services Facilities.”

This session will explore how two colleges transformed their equity and inclusion goals into one-stop student services facilities that provide safe, healthy, and welcoming spaces with visibility of the student body’s demographics. Through an intensive engagement design process, the team will demonstrate how to bring diverse voices into institution’s facilities planning process so that newly-designed spaces can embody equity and inclusion for greater student success.

Learning objectives include:

  1. Describe how two colleges developed equity and inclusion goals to support their institution’s ethos and promote student belonging and wellbeing.
  2. Illustrate how to expand the shared governance process to include diverse student and user voices to create safe and inclusive spaces for all.
  3. Detail a design process that incorporates ideas unique to each student demographic, going beyond program and code minimum requirements.
  4. Identify value-added design elements that support equitable access, safety, and visibility within an inclusive student services facility.

They will be accompanied by co-presenters, including Evergreen Valley College’s Vice President of Administrative Services, Andrea Alexander, and the Interim Associate Vice President, Chief Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Accessibility at MiraCosta College, Wendy Stewart.

Leigh Anne and Catherine’s session will be on the first day of the conference, Monday, March 27, from 3:40 – 4:40 PM.
