A Short Broadcast

This is a short broadcast designed to showcase thoughtful practices in higher education. You will hear a colleague’s success story, learn main successes and challenges of a model, and have the opportunity to ask questions and receive a few pieces of advice about how to proceed on your campus.

Who should attend?

If you are tasked with reducing deferred maintenance but feel like you’re jumping from one maintenance project to the next without a solid understanding of the big picture, then this broadcast is for you. You’ll find the broadcast especially relevant if your campus:

  • Is about to undertake a strategic/master planning process, OR
  • Has not yet undertaken a comprehensive condition audit, OR
  • Has leadership support for integrated deferred maintenance planning between departments, OR
  • Is looking for ways to engage key stakeholders in identifying and prioritizing deferred maintenance projects
