• Programs are scattered. Any opportunity to consolidate departments/programs should be taken advantage of. Program adjacencies are the most difficult space issue to address. Over time, the locations of programs usually hinder their success. Consider long term program locations and possible relocations during campus renovations and new building projects.
As a campus grows, it becomes difficult to maintain a strong proximity among spaces within a program. Today, we are also seeing many more interdisciplinary programs, causing a pedagogy shift in the needed adjacencies to support the new teaching methodologies. This, coupled with the quantity of space needed for growth, will require the University to relocate programs.
