The State of Facilities in Higher Education, 8th Edition

The State of Facilities in Higher Education, 8th Edition

By any measure, the past year has been extraordinary across the globe. And in a year with so many troubles, higher education in North America has faced its own particular challenges: hurried closures, empty dormitories and widespread furloughs, to name a few. For those stewarding our institutions’ facilities, the long months since January 2020 have been a whirlwind of short-term reactions, many of which will bear longer-term strategic consequences for some time.

This year’s State of Facilities in Higher Education report from Gordian examines the events of the past 12 months through the framework of three connected stories: the context, the reality and the future. Download this year’s report, written in partnership with APPA, to explore:

  • The context of trends that were already moving throughout higher education pre-pandemic
  • The reality of the impacts COVID-19 had on the industry and the craters left in its wake
  • The future of facilities stewardship in a forever-changed higher education landscape
