Joe Berridge on "The Campus in the Community"
Kingston and Queen’s University have been growing together since 1841. Today, more than ever, cities and universities are promoting these close relationships for mutual benefit. Joe Berridge, a partner of Urban Strategies Inc. – the lead consult for Queen's Campus Master Plan project – will draw on his experience in urban design and planning of campuses across Canada, the US, and the UK to suggest ways in which Queen’s and its host community can make the most from their historic relationship.
