The Forum is envisioned as a vibrant, multipurpose gathering space where practitioners, academics, and students from all over the campus come together, collaborate and socialize. It is the central core within the Impact and Prosperity Epicenter, and it is meant to be a destination that is accessible to all. The Forum is essentially an open, unobstructed space that has the flexibility of hosting multiple kinds of events and activities while maintaining its functionality as an entry and circulation path to the residential building and university centers housed in the building. A cafe with an adjacent convenient store will encourage people to spend time in the Forum and will foment culture and community building.
A central courtyard will extend the internal forum space into outdoor area, creating multiple opportunities for those who come to use this unique campus space.
