The SCUP 2023 North Central Regional Conference is here to provide planning professionals with forward-focused tools and ideas for rethinking their campus’s plans, programs, and built environments.

Solving global problems requires an integrated approach. To facilitate that approach, research environments must foster collaboration and blur boundaries between disciplines. This session will illustrate how a collaborative ecosystem across science and engineering at the University of Notre Dame (UND) promoted the discovery and implementation of solutions to address global problems at the intersection of human, environmental, and techno-social health. Come learn from UND’s approach to collaborative research efforts and alignment of space governance to gain insight into a different way of using space and developing research endeavors.
