Abstract/Description: The public traditionally knows universities as places of academic enrichment for students. They are also home to groundbreaking discoveries, movements, and historical events that have dramatically shaped nations. With any academic institution, there is a historical narrative embedded in campus buildings and monuments. From the architectural design of an institution to the monuments placed on the campus grounds, these elements play a crucial role in communicating the history, heritage, and identity of an institution. This study analyzes four institutions for their use of architectural design and campus monuments to establish an institutional identity: the University of Cambridge, Florida State University, The University of Alabama, and Flagler College. Each university, with their unique histories and approach to campus design, provides a unique perspective in understanding how universities create a historical narrative through its campus. With an increase in the study of campus planning and campus heritage by both academic institutions and scholars, it is important to consider how the qualities of campus design are also methods used to create a cohesive institutional identity that remembers and celebrates how history impacted an institution and vice versa. With each building and monument on a university campus, there is the opportunity to showcase this history and utilize the past to shape the institution’s present and future identity.
