Campus Behavior & Safety
A How-to Guide for Housing Master Planning
Dr. Steven Hood and Dr. Matthew Kerch
Housing departments of any size struggle with identifying which areas to prioritize while developing long-term planning documents, deferred maintenance needs, and annual upkeep of residence halls. There is an increasing need to develop long-range housing planning documents at institutions. Based upon conversations with housing authorities, research on evidence based practices, exploration of building components, and trial and error, a solid foundation of tools have been compiled that enhance the long-term planning processes.
During this webinar, strategies will be shared with participants that highlight how these projects were successful, due in large part to data driven decision-making informing smart fiscal practices, strategic planning, and promoting the importance of living on campus.
