IIT Facilities Hosts the Society of College and University Planners


Visitors listening to John Ronan.

On July 15, IIT Facilities hosted ​planning professionals representing over a dozen universities across North America as well as multiple design firms for a tour in conjunction with the national conference of the Society of College and University Planners.

The tour highlighted a) the blending of modern architecture within a historic campus, b) the development of university buildings adjacent to urban transportation systems, and c) the interrelationship between our Wiser Institute for Sustainable Energy Research and campus operations for mutual benefit.

The tour included a presentation by John Ronan, architect for The Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship.
