|Event Date/Time: Dec 03, 2012||End Date/Time: Dec 05, 2012|
As university budgets continue to tighten and the higher education model shifts to focus more on online education, campuses are being increasingly selective with the capital projects they choose to pursue. It is critical your campus invests in the most important, most impactful projects - the ones that closely align with your mission and master plan.
Join us in Memphis to learn how to develop a framework for an intentional and transparent capital planning process customized for your institution’s needs. This program will walk you through a collaborative approach to capital planning and incorporate working time for you to apply the framework to your campus.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The audience for this topic includes directors of capital planning, directors of real estate, directors of capital construction, chief financial officers, and vice presidents for real estate, facilities, capital expansion, and any campus administrator involved with the capital planning process at their institution. This content is intended for both private and public institutions that seek to improve the existing capital planning process on their campus.
OPTIONAL POST-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP
Aligning Capital Projects with the Capital Campaign
Most campuses are unable to complete any capital projects without an associated capital campaign. However, the management and consideration of donor demands can be a delicate undertaking within the capital planning process. The post-conference workshop will outline insights for collaborating with advancement to identify when, how, and what project information to share with potential donors, manage donor interests within the capital process, and set appropriate fundraising deadlines.
