SCUP Article Underscores the Importance of the Fourth P: Planning

The growth of Public Private Partnerships on U.S. campuses is changing the economics of campus finance as well as relationships between universities and their facilities and communities.

Proper planning when undertaking one of these multi-decade deals is critical to increasing the likelihood that the P3 will be successful.

In an in-depth article recently published in the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP), I and co-authors, (Scott Evans Miller and Buddy Hall), discuss lessons learned from institutions who’ve already gone the P3 route, tips for proper planning and how some institutions have found ways other than P3s to get facilities built.
