How can a school’s design and programming enhance learning, resiliency, and wellness not only for students and teachers but the community as a whole? Join the AIANY Education Committee for a workshop based on research conducted by the Consortium for Design and Education Outcomes (CDEO), a collaboration between Drexel University and Perkins Eastman.

Through their work with stakeholders across the country, CDEO has seen growing interest in community school models that offer a wider array of services than conventional schools. To help communities explore this more expansive role, CDEO is creating a toolkit for architects with interactive resources and actionable plans. This session will provide a summary of CDEO’s research to date, as well as a facilitated panel focusing on community school partnerships with a variety of organizations (health, food access and nutrition, and social emotional learning/support) and community schools in different geographical contexts (rural and urban).
