Transforming Student Health on Campus by Investing in Wellness

Presented by: Jerry Barker, Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Emeritus, North Carolina State University at Raleigh; Douglas Hall, Principal, BBH Design; Sumayya Jones-Humienny, Associate University Architect, North Carolina State University at Raleigh

While evaluating and addressing how best to serve a growing, diverse student population, North Carolina State University’s student health services acknowledged that healthier students—in mind, body, and spirit—yield healthier academic outcomes. Investing in student well-being can improve academic achievement, retention, and graduation rates, as well as campus safety. Expanding and renovating the existing student health center and counseling center were essential to addressing steady enrollment growth, ultimately improving the university’s academic future.

Learning Outcome(s):

1.   Establish priorities for baseline health and counseling/mental health services campuses should provide to enhance student learning experiences.

2.   Specify resources available to campuses for evaluating your student health and counseling services.

3.   Identify key partnerships and collaborations that can generate support for student well-being through capital investments in a student health center.

4.   Demonstrate, through a case study, how an addition to and renovation of an existing facility transformed one campus’s service offerings and student health experience.

Creating a Sense of Place on a Commuter College Campus

Presented by:  BBH Design

Learning Outcome(s):

1.   Illustrate the transformation of an existing community college from a fractured collection of buildings to an integrated campus with a strong sense of place.
