Systemic Capital-Improvement Strategies to Weather the Coming Financial Storm

Delivered July 14, 2019
Presented by Libby Ramirez, Kip Richardson, Steve Tatge, Dan Zalkow

Higher education's nearly maxed-out debt capacity, decreasing state funding, and shrinking enrollment reduce revenues while facilities-related costs rise. Let's discuss how capital improvement, partnering, and financing strategies can change course. This session will frame universities' capital planning, operations, and maintenance challenges as a systemic fiscal issue. We will present holistic solutions and review strategies currently considered by universities to address and correct the situation.
