Overview:

Campuses across the country face difficult challenges balancing institutional growth, transportation access, quality of life, and relationships with community neighbors, all within constrained budgets. This session explored national and international examples of successful techniques campuses are using to manage transportation while building sustainable communities. Attendees heard what’s working, in a variety of campus settings, from small towns to large cities. The panelists, Spenser Havlick and Will Toor, are co-authors of Transportation & Sustainable Campus Communities: Issues, Examples, & Solutions. They discussed how campuses large and small are expanding transit access, enhancing bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and designing incentives that encourage less driving. Spenser Havlick and Will Toor brought their practical experience both at the University of Colorado in Boulder and as elected officials in Boulder city and county government. A member of the Boulder city council for over 20 years, Mr. Havlick is an environmental design professor at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Formerly mayor of Boulder, Mr. Toor is now a county commissioner.

This 84-minute session, moderated by Donna Smallwood, MassRIDES/URS Corporation, featured the following presentations:
