Campus Services Growth and Service Model Study

The University of Cincinnati (“University”) engaged a team led by Johnson Consulting in association with Envision Strategies, Scion (Volz Company team members Ann Volz and Ted Risher were represented by contract as Scion), and DESMAN Design Management (“Team”) to undertake a Campus Services Growth and Service Model Study. The study focused on Dining, Housing, Parking, Recreation, and Conference and Event Services.

The Team collaborated with the University to accomplish the following main objectives to inform campus planning:
• Assess the capacity of each auxiliary use for growth relative to future enrollment.
• Quantify current and projected demand under different enrollment scenarios.
• Identify and prioritize projects for each auxiliary use.
• Identify innovative industry trends and market factors.
• Provide justification for different phasing strategies that aligned within ongoing planning efforts and strategic objectives.

An extensive, collaborative effort was made to complete the study, including participation from a cross-section of campus administrators, faculty, and students. The Team toured the campus, conducted student focus group sessions, met with university and city stakeholders, and reviewed key documents – including previous Campus Master Plans relevant to key subject areas. The data was then used to provide phasing strategies for future implementation of new and renovated facilities based on enrollment projections ranging from conservative to extreme growth.
