About Our Past Events
The Covid pandemic has had the unexpected effect of convincing many higher education leaders that remote work should become a permanent feature of campus work culture. One major enticement is the expectation of significant reductions in office space, saving both capital and operational costs.
Senior facilities officers know that space and cost savings have proved elusive in the past, even when there were compelling reasons to improve space utilization. At the same time, the Covid crisis has opened new opportunities to break old habits and rethink the campus workplace. Our virtual working sessions are designed to help senior facilities officers manage leadership expectations while exploiting the unique opportunity window.
In these sessions, attendees will engage with each other and with EAB’s Facilities Forum research to explore ways to realize the promise of untethered work in the new era. Through workshop exercises and sharing of experiences, we will discuss various questions around work models, space and cost savings, investments, and educating campus leadership.
