Creative Accounting and Integrated Planning: Alternative Approaches to Overcome Challenges, Fund Projects, and Provide Services
May 18, 2017 | Butler University | Indianapolis, IN
In this age of declining enrollments, ever-increasing pressure to resist tuition increases, and reduced funding from state governments and other sources, planners are challenged to identify alternative approaches for funding facilities and providing campus services. During this day-long conference, we will address the following questions:
How can you provide state-of-the-art, platinum-quality student housing without impacting your balance sheet?
How can you improve town/gown relations, parking, and provide more dining options with a mixed-use retail parking garage on your campus...while not compromising aesthetics?
How can you update a 100-year-old historic building utilizing historic preservation tax credits?
How do university CFOs and senior leaders use integrated planning to address these and the many other challenges they face?
Explain the opportunities and challenges associated with public-private partnership/developer-led off-balance-sheet student housing.
List the advantages and disadvantages of utilizing historic preservation tax credit financing to renovate aging facilities on campus.
Address the ever-present issue of parking with the community and the campus through an integrated planning approach.
Describe the decision-making processes and challenges associated with developing and operating retail on (or adjacent to) campus from an outside, non-university perspective.
