Are there things you could be doing smarter?

The Higher Ed Facilities Forum is an invite-only gathering of senior administrators from the nation’s leading colleges and universities.

In the coming decades, higher education will experience a major transformation. Fast moving advancements in technology, reduced government support, and the need to make college more affordable will force institutions to rethink their ways of doing business. With real estate typically the single largest asset on a university’s balance sheet, it will become imperative for facilities leaders to operate leaner and more closely align with the changing directions of their institutions.

The Higher Ed Facilities Forum was developed to bring together senior administrators from the nation’s top colleges and universities to explore how to efficiently meet these current and future facilities needs. From a peer-driven conference program to pre-arranged strategy meetings with leading supplier companies, participants of the forum will depart with the knowledge, tools, and business partners necessary to progress during these uncertain times.
