From diverse perspectives, our speakers will discuss topics including the acquisition and disposal of real estate assets, the benefits and challenges of public-private partnerships, and unique programs established by their institutions to creatively address the shifting market. In addition to insight into industry trends, our panelists will discuss specific projects underway at their respective institutions, including the development and programmatic highlights and challenges of those projects. These key facility undertakings include a comprehensive university housing master plan and a community-university collaborative housed within the adaptive re-use of a local retail icon. The group will also look forward at the upcoming opportunities that await planning, design, engineering, and construction firms across the Garden State. This is a unique opportunity to hear firsthand the experience and knowledge of four of the leaders shaping New Jersey’s premier higher education institutions. Join us on Wednesday, April 8th from 8 to 10:30am at the Daikin Solutions Plaza in Jersey City. [/expand]
