EDsession Program & Schedule

Leveraging Historic Building Assets in the University Campus Master Plan

  • Date:Wednesday, November 3
  • Time:1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: Over the last 20 years Chatham University has transformed and grown from a small campus of aging, historical buildings to a thriving, energetic learning environment located on three separate campuses. The transformation through thoughtful planning, expansion, and the measured adaptation of older historic structures has increased the vibrancy, sustainability, and well-being essential to create a contemporary / historic campus experience. Carefully transforming valuable landmarks has elevated the campus experience for students, faculty, and even the neighboring community. The success of this approach has become the strategy for the Master Plan and the continued transformation ahead.
