This year's President to President series focuses on how institutions are developing innovative campus life and integrated housing strategies that ensure positive business outcomes while enhancing the student experience on campus. The series is published by Sodexo.
The first chapter in this ten-part series was written by José Antonio Bowen, Ph.D., president of Goucher College in Baltimore, Md. Bowen explores ways in which colleges and universities can design residence halls to improve learning and provide space for social integration. During Bowen's presidency, Goucher College completed a major renovation and expansion of its student housing accommodations. The article, "Designing for Integrative Learning," describes how residence halls can provide excellent opportunities to integrate the experiences of a Living Learning Community. It also explains how Goucher College used the renovation process as a way to make conscious design choices that would increase student and faculty interaction, improve student satisfaction, and support retention.
Each month, a new chapter of President to President will be authored by a notable leader in higher education whose institution is at in the forefront of innovative philosophies and practices. Sodexo provides publishing support but exerts no editorial influence to the series. Chapters will be distributed and promoted electronically and posted on president2president.com. At the end of the series, all content will be published into a thought-provoking collection and made available online.
