On average, U.S. colleges and universities allocate nearly $5 per gross square foot for their facilities operating budgets. While the facilities department is often one of the largest units on campus, managing the entire physical plant, it frequently becomes a customer-service operation, with a variety of stakeholders affected by the day-to-day operations of the facilities team.

Join Steve Thweatt, NACUBO consultant and former vice chancellor for administration at University of Colorado Boulder, and Jim Hundrieser, vice president for NACUBO Consulting, for a conversation about how campus facilities departments can increase communication about costs, improve perception, and meet client needs.
