The State of Facilities in Higher Education, 9th Edition

For colleges and universities across North America, the recent past has been a torrent of disruptions and fast adaptations. What remains to be seen is whether campuses are evolving in ways that will stand the test of time or simply showing resilience amid the turbulence.

This year’s State of Facilities in Higher Education report from Gordian examines trends in space, enrollment and staffing that are defining the future of the industry and suggests practical steps campus leaders can take to help secure their place in that future.

Topics include:

  • The growing facilities backlog as buildings from campus growth periods show their age.
  • The impact of the enrollment cliff and remote learning on campuses spaces.
  • The shrinking facilities workforce.
