Using Campus Development to Build Industry Partnerships and Dismantle Academic Silos

Published 2019
Presented by Kelly Dreyer, Robert Goldstein, James E. Modig

Preparing graduates for the workforce requires higher ed to work more closely with industry and organize academic opportunities around real-world problems, not departments. We will detail how the University of Kansas (KU) strategically used new campus building developments to do both develop industry partnerships and interdisciplinary collaborations. You will learn how to design, build, and operate a new and transformative campus development with an integrated approach to facilities, courses, and management, including strategies to gain industry partnerships.
