dc.description.abstract Institutions of higher education are created with purpose and place in mind: the complexities of collegiate environments influence student learning, success, behavior, and attitudes, and in turn students shape the environments which they inhabit (Renn & Patton, 2011). Certain aspects of colleges are more functional, welcoming, and inclusive than others, and in turn facilitate learning and nurture student development to a greater degree. Strange and Banning (2015) address the nature and assessment of academic environments, examining the process of person-environment interaction through the physical, human aggregate, organizational, and socially constructed forces contained therein. This project describes how this integrated framework of campus environments relates to Sacred Heart University (SHU). en_US
