Higher Ed Forum

studentsb_2016_croppedThe Higher Ed Forum at the Summit is a half day, participant-driven event for facility managers, sustainability staff, faculty, and students. From operations to student involvement, curriculum to community outreach, the Higher Ed Forum is an emerging venue for higher education to tap the collective brain trust, grapple with the challenges we face, and renew passion for our work as we determine how to do more good on our campuses and in our communities. The Higher Ed Forum runs on Thursday, March 16th from noon to 5:00 pm in the Shepherd Union Building.
