12:30 - 1:45 p.m. Workshop Presenter Luncheon
2:00 - 3:15 p.m. Cluster Meetings 1 (Optional; Advance Registration Required)
Clusters are three or four institutions (15 - 18 people and two facilitators) working together with two assigned consultants -- an architect and an experienced faculty member. The same cluster groups will meet throughout the workshop with the intent, by Saturday morning, to develop a feasible agenda for action for each team to bring back to campus, an agenda that is shaped by i) formal discussions in the sessions; ii) informal discussions throughout the workshop; and iv) interactions with other cluster members.

  •   C. Challenges of the Future-- Comments from participants in the PKAL Facilities Roundtable
    Moderator: David Van Wylen, Associate Dean of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, St. Olaf College

    (Keys to a successful project are that the best people are brought to the task and empowered with the requisite responsibilities and responses, that avenues of communication are kept open and all perspectives are at the table, and that the institutional climate is one in which the best ideas are identified and captured in the process. Getting started right, even if now new building is in the planning stages, is key to a successful project. Getting started right means understanding the program AND having the right people involved.. as appropriate… in a timely manner throughout the process.)
    5:15 - 6:15 p.m. Session II: Cluster Meetings 2

    (The opportunity to make a bricks and mortar contribution to an institution may come but once in a lifetime; do not waste it. In your planning, press for a structure that contributes to the strength and humanity of your campus, accommodates a curricular vision of the future of SME&T on your campus, and serves the students on your campus most effectively.)

      (Planning a new facility, even a single classroom or laboratory, is a defining moment in the life of an institution. Not because you will solve the problem of too little space for too many faculty and students or the problem of inadequate hoods or leaking roofs, but because the process leads to thinking deeply about institutional mission and context, toward the end of designing spaces that are contextually appropriate, that serve your particular campus community with distinction.)

      Cost Planning
    Larry Gleason, Vice President, Cost, Planning and Management International
      (Because of the high cost of building, equipping, and maintaining science facilities, the specter of ways and means-fund-raising, budgeting, and financing-will always be present in your discussions. The final project budget will include, in addition to construction costs, items as diverse as endowments for equipment or short-term interest expense. For the project to proceed and succeed, the budget must be within the reasonable capacity of your institution. Too high a budget will kill a project early-on; too low a budget will kill it later.)
