Funding Campus Growth Today: What Are the Options?
Today’s college and university campuses must accommodate and address new learning styles, technical innovation, resource conservation, aging infrastructure, and changing student expectations. Students expect healthy, safe, flexible, and nurturing environments that foster collaboration and support education anywhere, anytime. During the past decade, campus planners have developed long-range strategic plans and master plans that translate these trends into 21st Century learning environments. However, with the decline in public funding levels, construction has slowed to a trickle on many campuses, challenging planners to identify and secure alternative financing to implement their plans.
Several funding strategies have emerged, including Public Private Partnerships (P3) and an increased focus on developer driven and donor funded projects. Likewise, delivery methods that were once considered alternative—such as Design/Build and Lease-Leaseback—are quickly becoming the norm, reflecting trends in new funding sources.Funding campus growth today can be complex and challenging, but also full of opportunity. This one-day symposium will explore the following questions faced by campus planners:
Our symposium facilitator will introduce the day’s topic, followed by a panel of speakers who will speak to the theme of the conference. The day will conclude with a reception and campus tour, including the recently completed, zero net energy, West Village mixed-use community delivered using the P3 model.
