Title: Can designers help colleges survive in the age of rising tuition?

Abstract:  A healthy higher education system is crucial to a healthy, knowledge-driven economy. Yet the very existence of colleges and universities is threatened by diminishing public funding and the rising cost of education in the U.S. Solutions are layered and complex. Designers can help. Working with teams that bring together public-private partnerships and experts in data analysis, architects are key to building the kinds of facilities needed by digital-age students while keeping costs within 21st century expectations.

Principal Mike Day took part in this event as one of the panelists.
