ASLA's Campus Planning & Design Professional Practice Network (PPN) has invited four panelists working in higher education and campus stewardship to reflect on how their campuses are adapting in response to COVID-19. Panelists will share their experiences and observations of evolving trends as we collectively pull through the first few months after this public health disaster.
