dc.description.abstractThis report is divided into two parts. The first part explores the history of historic preservation and campus heritage movement in the United States. As historic preservation has advanced in recent years, traditional preservation concerns have changed and new challenges have arrived. The unique challenges and opportunities for campus preservation have differed from traditional historic building preservation. The second part of the report focuses on the campus design and preservation of Wuhan University in China. It first introduces the original planning and design for Wuhan University by American architect F. H. Kales. Then, it assesses the significance of the campus design on its historical, scientific, artistic values of mixed Western and Chinese cultures. Challenges facing Wuhan University for campus heritage preservation are reviewed next and recommendations are provided in the end.en
