Private and Public Thought Leaders Share Their Views On Innovation in Funding a Healthy Campus & Community
Campus design and development are no longer a process which solely focuses on the construction and the design of buildings. As we continue to understand how the integration of people and space impact community collaboration and commerce the human design elements and support systems of 21st century higher education facilities become increasingly critical.
A conference dedicated to “breaking barriers through innovation” would not be complete without discussion about creating, funding and operating healthy campuses and places. The Summit will take place June 8 and 9 in Atlanta, GA. As part of the TUFF Conference (Leaders and Visionaries Track) we are excited to bring you Innovation in Funding a Healthy Campus & Community.
