Nate Appleman will present “Future of Campus Facilities: Marrying Academics, Athletics and Student Life” at the SCUP 2018 Conference in Nashville.

University administrators overseeing facility development on campuses must find ways to balance the needs of educational offerings with the revenue that collegiate athletics generate. New campus projects are marrying academics, athletics, recreation and student life. These hybrid building types are changing the way projects are managed, financed and programmed. By examining the University of Notre Dame’s Campus Crossroads project, this session will address collaboration opportunities that elevate collective campus facility needs.
