University of Florida Strategic Development Plan

Gainesville, Florida
Client: University of Florida

The project team became fully immersed in the campus and community, understanding not only strengths, challenges, and opportunities, but also inner workings and relationships. The team — with expertise in urban design, real estate, transportation, campus planning, and strategic thinking — interviewed over 200 stakeholders and conducted a public symposium in which practitioners from peer institutions engaged in community conversations about experience and lessons learned.”
