    GBA/GIP Virtual Programming: The Hub

    Innovative Shared Workspace Pre-, Mid-, and Post-pandemic for Clinical Faculty

    At the start of 2019, the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus had a space deficit of 245 offices in its accommodation of full-time clinical faculty. The previous model of providing clinical faculty members with dedicated individual or shared offices had proven to be unsustainable. A strategy of leasing space off campus for this purpose proved to be even less fiscally prudent. The Hub project has allowed UC Anschutz Medical Campus to provide a successful shared work environment designed to foster collaboration, cross-disciplinary communication, and faculty well-being, while simultaneously increasing overall occupant capacity (full-time equivalent/gross square feet) within an existing facility. During this webinar sponsored by the Group on Business Affairs (GBA) and the Group on Institutional Planning (GIP), the speakers discussed how they navigated the process involved in formulating, achieving buy-in, and ultimately actualizing the Hub solution. The Hub exemplifies a new, more flexible workplace modality in tune with the zeitgeist of a 21st century open and shared workspace culture. Additionally, this webinar was presented as a breakout session during the GBA/GIP 2022 Joint Spring Meeting in San Francisco.
