Integrating the Campus with the Local Community

SCUP North Atlantic Regional Conference, Worcester, MA, March 5–7, 2017

In this year’s Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) North Atlantic Regional Conference, Patrick Tedesco will be joined by leaders of Suffolk University and of Boston Planning & Development Agency in a session titled “Suffolk University: Transforming an urban campus in the heart of historic Boston.” Using the University’s new 20 Somerset Street building as an example, they will illustrate how the development tackled various challenges from real estate acquisitions to adaptive reuse of an urban campus.

Debi McDonald and leaders from the Berkshire Community College will jointly present a session titled “Campus-Community Collaborations for the Young and Young at Heart.” They will discuss the College’s recent effort to foster better interactions between the campus and the local community.
