Integration of schools and community infrastructure: A network analysis

Register here


This paper presents a literature review and preliminary research design addressing the key research question: What are the roles of schools within a community infrastructure network? By exploring the community connections beyond the boundaries of the school, are there opportunities to increase the integration of school and community infrastructure? Opposing school design objectives of connection versus security have made community hub schools difficult to achieve in practice. This research proposes a networked approach to community infrastructure, which includes schools, to view existing and potential connections between facilities.
