Webinar: How to Align Your Housing Operation with Institution-wide Goals?

Many colleges and universities leveraged the conditions forced upon them by the COVID-19 pandemic to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of their business models. While nearly all focused on how best to deliver academic instruction, administer daily operations, and manage their physical assets, some concentrated specifically on how student-centered auxiliaries (e.g., housing, dining, campus recreation, bookstore, etc.) needed to change to drive maximum impact.

This webinar highlights Tennessee Technological University’s (“TTU”) extensive assessment of its housing operations with the goal of increasing its capacity to drive value in alignment with the University’s overall strategic objectives related to enrollment management, curriculum enhancement, and financial/operational management strategies. TTU will discuss the drivers for its assessment, the planning process, the areas of operational focus for the assessment, organizational dynamics, and outcomes.

With the ebb and flow of reopening phases, and as trends evolve, one thing is certain: student’s perspective on campus life is evolving and they demand next-level experiences. From a personalized culinary experience delivered right to them, to transportation at their fingertips, virtual and live residence life events and career-shaping internships. Join Sodexo COO Cal Thetford and Research Director Jon Preciado for a roundtable discussion, and through the lens of dining, understand how recent intelligence and insights has our industry adapting at record pace.
