    GIP Subcommittee on Facilities Planning & Space Management: Hot Topic Discussions

    The GIP Facilities Planning and Space Management Subcommittee is focused on establishing a library of information that is useful to members of the GIP, recommending data collection efforts related to space, developing common definitions around space and financial data to allow for metric development and benchmarking, and much more. Over the past months, members of the subcommittee have been taking turns facilitating hot topic discussions on the monthly subcommittee calls on topics such as: emergency preparedness, building simulation centers, reporting metrics, and data management systems.

    Emergency Preparedness in the New Work Environment - March 2021

    On the March call, William Myles from the Keck School of Medicine at University of Southern California, facilitated a timely hot topic discussion on emergency preparedness. Emergency preparedness and safety routines on university campuses and in ancillary properties require observation and the evaluation of risks, even with reduced presence of students, staff, and faculty. While the COVID-19 pandemic demanded emergency response on a global scale, our medical schools remained open, maintaining their mission of preparing physicians, researchers and educators for present day and expected healthcare challenges. Preparedness and training activities discussed allow medical schools to be responsive and resilient during emergencies, old or emerging.
