Webinar: How do you Maximize your Public Print Program?

ASU’s managed print program will be discussed including the student experience and partnership initiatives. The current print program serves approximately 70,000 students across four campuses. Insight into ASU’s managed print program can help to serve as an example of how to leverage partnerships and provide effective services to a larger audience. Participants will actively engage in polling to understand trends around user experience, pricing, balancing demand and sustainability goals and leveraging institutional (internal) print management.

Focus:
Revenue – Business Model, Pricing, etc.
Sustainability – Print avoidance, default to duplex and black & white, 100% recycled paper, etc.
Student Success – Convenience, accessibility, etc.

Webinar: Continued Conversations: State of the Higher Education P3 Industry

This presentation will be a continuation and update to the previous presentation on the state of P3s in the higher education industry at C3X 2018. With so many higher education public-private partnership (P3) projects underway nationwide, and with so many others being considered, we have heard for years the market is exploding. Is it? And how does this answer change as we look at different school types and other differences? B&D’s Executive Vice President Jeff Turner will share the results of the firm’s first annual comprehensive survey of higher education P3 transactions. With an eye toward housing, this survey attempted to capture every P3 project since 2014. Metrics captured include total project cost, deal structure, ground lease term, region, student enrollment, and more. This first annual “snapshot” produced some fascinating results, including trends—and lack thereof. This data will empower campus professionals exploring development projects. Furthermore, Mr. Turner will discuss the emergence of higher education P3 projects for energy, innovation districts, student unions, parking, academic buildings, and more. These projects may change how schools plan, making this an important, timely discussion. Attendees will also hear about how they can contribute to the Higher Ed P3 Resource Center (www.p3resourcenter.com) the industry’s central library.

Webinar: Continued Conversations: Our Student Center & Atrium 18 Months In

This presentation offers a continuation and update to the C3X session in Orlando about our 12-Week Renovation & Construction project in the Temple Student Center food court and Atrium. After 18 months of living with the outcome of the project, we’ll share information, lessons learned, and both operational and programmatic updates with participants. Those in attendance will develop a greater understanding of how just in time decisions making during a project can both help and hinder longer term success. Attendees will also learn more about the partnership with Aramark during their first 18 months on campus. As the first project in their new contract with Temple, we have learned a great deal about each other along the way. Presenters will share useful info, things to consider, potential brand/concept changes, and other programmatic, operational and financial information as we move towards our second summer with our new partners and our new space.

Webinar: Continued Conversations: Assessing Student Worker Training Programs

This presentation will be a continuation and update to the previous presentation on student employee training at C3X 2018. We will describe our processes and methods utilized to collect information in developing a student worker training program to prepare students for their future careers. This assessment focused on the necessary experiences and workplace skills that are useful for student workers as identified by supervisors.

Research shows that working on campus enhances students’ academic performance, as well as provide students with professional experience. We conducted focus groups with supervisors within the Division of Administration and Finance at the University of Houston to identify key work place skills, behaviors and attitudes that supervisors in non-academic position believe are essential for student workers. Come learn about how we developed a training module for student workers and prepared our student employees with the tools, resources, and training to position them for success in their career path.
