This concluding chapter speculates on the trends and future of twenty-first-century higher education and urban campus development, following the scars left behind by postwar urban renewal. This Chicago case study illustrates the complex interplay of interactions between the campus and the city—which creates not a homogenous landscape, but an irregular, fragmented set of “scapes” that nevertheless creates community rather than a ruined institution. The city is likewise just as diverse—with its own set of peoples and cultures that can oftentimes come into conflict with the university in terms of physical space, identity, and scarce resources. Such chaos belies the organization evident within the urban campus—which, despite containing several sub-communities of its own, cannot isolate itself from the larger context of the global city.
