P3 Higher Education Success Story Case Studies

One common thread in creating a successful framework for a Public Private Partnership is the strategic alignment of community stakeholders toward a mutually beneficial outcome. Over the past 18 months, two higher education institutions have been successful in bringing together stakeholders with common interests to move capital projects forward. Indiana University, together with the City of Evansville and other stakeholders in the region, have embarked on a new development that will advance the academic and economic platform of these entities through a creative partnership arrangement. In Central Florida, Seminole State College received and approved an unsolicited proposal to kick-start the development of a new campus in the Orlando area. These two case studies will be featured in a panel discussion among the key players who are involved in moving these initiatives forward toward completion. Speakers include representatives from Indiana University, the City of Evansville, Seminole State College, Century HealthRealty and Skanska.
