Are public/private partnerships the right choice for financing your campus projects and new facilities?
Increasing demands for capital expansion, combined with a continued weak economy, make partnerships with private entities an attractive option for financing new campus facilities. But before forming partnerships, an institution must understand various structures and options, as well as possible implications of the partnerships on risk profile, debt capacity, credit rating, and even town-gown relations.
Join us in Milwaukee to learn how you can build partnerships with builders, financiers, property managers, and your community that will help minimize your institution’s financial risk and bring new opportunities to your physical campus. This program will cover a variety of financing models and delivery methods and highlight a diverse sample of recent campus projects.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Our team of expert instructors will present practical advice and information on the following:
Tips for identifying goals, resources, and key players for a potential P3 project

How to build a collaborative spirit among on- and off-campus constituencies

Best practices in developing legally sound operating agreements
There is also an optional post-conference workshop titled "The Smart RFP." See the complete agenda for details.
