Did our campus improvement plans reset with COVID?

Did our campus improvement plans reset with COVID?

Reported by Higher Ed Dive, many of our priority campus improvement plans before COVID are likely at the back of the line today. And even very recent builds are being looked at as problematic today if they don’t have state of the art HVAC systems or prioritize very open spaces.

The takeaway? The pandemic has changed campus planning priorities for the foreseeable future. A lot of very high-priced pandemic-centric items are now at the top of the list. And most unfortunately, enrollment struggles from the last year likely make this planning list more of a wishful thinking list than ever before.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
