The State of Facilities in Higher Education: 2015 Trends and Best Practices

Leveling or declining enrollments. Aging buildings and infrastructure. Growing backlog of deferred maintenance. Limited capital and operational funds.

Previous reports have highlighted these trends affecting colleges and universities, and Sightlines’ 2015 State of Facilities in Higher Education report shows these trends are accelerating.

The new report delves into these issues and discusses how institutions are addressing current challenges. Finance and facilities leaders are making real change on campus by advocating for institutional policies that optimize resources and produce desired outcomes for the future of their facilities.

The report discusses key trends and issues, such as:
  • Space and enrollment growth by constituent group (comprehensive, research institutions, community colleges and small institutions);
  • Why funding source and mix of capital spending matters; and
  • The importance of understanding how to make facilities problems seem more manageable.
To offer even more data, details and discuss around the State of Facilities report, Sightlines will host a webinar on Thursday, December 10 at 1 p.m. EST. Click here to learn more.

Founded in 2000, Sightlines works with more than 270 academic institutions annually to create its ROPAsm (Return-on-Physical-Assets) service, which provides a holistic approach to defining capital needs and provides and independent view of campus performance, reliably benchmarked against peer institutions.  Academic institutions use ROPAsm to defend budgets, secure additional funds, evaluate new construction, rebalance budgets, assess maintenance backlogs, determine proper staffing and service levels, and successfully present budgets to boards.
