Gensler Design Exchange

The Gensler Design Exchange creates a dialogue between design experts, creative trendsetters, and thought leaders to discuss how we shape the future of cities.

Jul 25, 2019

Colleges and universities have cracked the code to propel cities forward toward the future of education: focus on the campus experience, expand pathways to new careers, and partner with surrounding communities and cities to drive growth. In Arlington, Va., Marymount University has done just that.

In today’s podcast, Duncan Lyons, Design Director at Gensler, is speaking with Matthew Shank, President Emeritus at Marymount University and President of the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges, and Samantha Baker, Director of Operations at the Ballston Business Improvement District and graduate student at Marymount University, to talk about what makes Marymount a model for the future of higher education in mixed use, urban environments.
