Oct 14, 2015
Broaddus Planning presented multiple speaking sessions at the Society for College & University Planning (SCUP) 2015 Southern Regional Conference: "Planning for Higher Education; Exploring New Frontiers".  Stephen Coulston, President of Broaddus Planning and Co-chair of the conference, moderated a panel discussion titled "Less is More: Balancing Demands When Less Becomes the Constant".  The panel of Paul Leef (Executive Vice President and Principal of Paulien & Associates), Nancy Nusbaum (Associate Vice President of Finance & Support Services Planning at Texas State University), and Daniel Sniff (Associate Vice President for Facilities Planning at the University of Georgia) covered how new trends are influencing facility decisions and outcomes on collegiate institutions both in Southern states and across the country.
Additionally, Andrew Broderick, Project Manager of Broaddus Planning, presented "New Endeavors in Higher Education on the Old Cattle Drive" with three members of the Tarleton State University leadership: Tye Minckler (Vice President of Finance and Administration), Kimberly Rynearson (Associate Professor of Psychology), and Aaron Wand (Director of Facilities Services).  The presentation gave an overview of Broaddus' recent planning efforts on behalf of the Texas A&M University System and Tarleton State for its new 80-acre campus at the southern edge of Fort Worth. 
Finally, Peter Baird, Project Manager of Broaddus Planning,  presented a lightning round presentation titled "Do Students Need to Drive? AKA The Campus Parking Quagmire".  The 14-minute, fast-paced presentation covered assumptions about private automobile use that are being challenged and the impact this has on parking policy, pedestrianization, and campus density.
