This event has been cancelled. We will be in touch shortly regarding your event registration.

When multiple physical, political, and financial perspectives and considerations must be considered in planning and project implementation, partnership must come first. During this one-day symposium speakers and panelists will share their ideas, challenges, and successes planning for development on or near institutions of higher education and how partnerships and collaborations with the various on-campus and off-campus communities of stakeholders are vital the project’s success.

Henry Webber, Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Administrative Officer at Washington University in St. Louis, will serve as the keynote speaker addressing the critical role of anchor institutions in urban communities. Mr. Weber brings a unique perspective as he is also Professor of Practice at the Brown School and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, in addition to his administrative duties at the university.

The day’s speakers and panelists include leaders from Washington University in St. Louis, the St. Louis Midtown Redevelopment Corporation (an association between Saint Louis University and SSM Health), Lindenwood University, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, St. Louis Community College, and Ozarks Technical Community College to share their insights and pathways to success.

The day will conclude with tours of the recently completed projects on the East End of the Washington University campus. The tour includes a new park, an addition to the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, and five new buildings, one of which is the heart of the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts.
