The Future of Colorado’s Higher Ed Campuses: Understanding present challenges, opportunities and outlook

What’s in store for Colorado’s Higher Education campuses? Join us in a rapid-fire, Pecha Kucha style presentation, followed by intimate (video-on) small group break-out sessions to learn what is in the pipeline for short, mid, and long-term planning and capital improvements.

Topics will include upcoming opportunities, plans for funding and delivery methods, and trends that institutions perceive will be most important as we head into the next 10 years of higher ed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify current and future projects/plans at Colorado’s institutions
  • Gain insights for procurement process and what institutions look for in an AEC provider
  • See shift in higher education trends, and what higher education institutions are seeing for recovery
  • Understand biggest challenges in campus project development
