Research campuses are an increasingly important and integral part of innovative research development in higher education. By generating the right type of campus environment, institutions can foster successful partnerships with private entities. The J.J. Pickle Research Campus Plan marks an operational shift for the University of Texas (UT) at Austin, exploring mixed-use development and an integrated research environment to leverage a real estate asset and advance the university's mission. Come learn from multiple case studies, including UT Austin, and discuss the impact of environment, research focus, and governance structure on both the academic and financial success of a research campus.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify successful governance structures that support research advancement.
  2. Outline various financial structures that allow for shared development opportunities between institutions and private partners.
  3. Explain the benefit of mixed-use and integrated districts on innovation.
  4. Describe the importance of institutional identity and branding within a research and partnership development site.
