It’s now more important than ever for higher education institutions to leverage resources and demonstrate their relevancy to the students and communities they serve. This requires creativity and grit. This session will demonstrate how to meet complex needs for economic mobility and the workforce through several diverse partnerships involving campus buildings, major public realm investments, and a $300 million public-supported levy. You’ll learn about various sources you can use to achieve successful project results—city capital and operational money, voters, private sector—as well as how you can nurture your campus and community partnerships for the long term.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Approach government officials and other potential partners with an example of a mutually beneficial partnership structure.
  2. Assess needs and opportunities for partnership development.
  3. Conduct a collaborative workshop to explore partnership activities.
  4. Prepare a leverage strategy around programs and funding for your project.
