April Town Hall: Facilities Decision Points

Alan Flurry

More than 100 colleagues attended the Town Hall on Tuesday, April 27, which focused on Facilities Decision Points discussions and feedback. Franklin College associate dean for facilities Michelle Momany provided background on the university-wide Central Space Committee and how that group's deliberations and decisions factor into our plans for a new service model supporting the college’s business needs. These Town Hall discussions, including questions and feedback from business staff, are critical to a successful process. The project team thanks everyone for their time and attention, and especially the thoughtful consideration given to the different models under consideration, the traditional office model vs. the collaborative office. Two general points to reiterate from the Town Hall:

  • No decisions about facilities have been made
  • Discussions and surveys indicate that staff largely favor a collaborative work environment

Input from staff and faculty helps to guide the direction and decision-making of the Franklin Works initiative. We depend on each other and collegial goodwill to make these sessions constructive and a productive use of everyone's time. Again, thank you to everyone for coming to these sessions prepared and ready to participate.
