This chapter discusses the important lessons about sustainable campus development UNC and Chapel Hill learned from their experience in planning, reviewing, and building a huge campus addition during the dynamic decade. They learned to define sustainable campus development as a balance of historic preservation concerns, current development demands, and future potential needs. They learned to use the University's mission statement as a touchstone for assessing development proposals. They learned to collaborate on building consensus to solve problems arising from the unprecedented scale and impacts of the resulting growth. They learned to determine the responsible capacity of the campus in light of sustaining natural systems. Finally, they learned to use an ongoing review process to ensure that project designs respected broader needs for campus character and consistency.
