January 18–21, 2022: THE CHARRETTE
Studio of the Future: The Charrette week kicked off the Hines College’s strategic planning processing at the start of the spring 2022 semester. The charrette served as an assessment from the student perspective, meant to challenge normative thinking and question, redefine, and reshape the studio culture of the College. The effort sought to reconnect the Hines College community, imagine the future of the studio, establish goals and strategies for investing in the College’s digital and physical infrastructure, and pave the way for the future strategic plan. The summary document below highlights the different provocations posed during the charrette and summaries of the findings.
