Learn more about the Blue Ribbon Panel's work on defining the Campus of the Future

What makes up a Campus of the Future from a real estate and facility management technology perspective? Planon has brought together a team of experts in the higher education field from across the United States to define just that. These panelists represent some of the brightest and enthusiastic minds in the facility management and real estate world of Higher Education. They bring years of expertise and leadership to this important discussion.

The goal of the Blue Ribbon Panel is to: together, define the minimum set of requirements necessary within a campus management software solution to support the users of the smart campus of the future.

The Blue Ribbon Panel is exploring a wide range of topics, some include:

  • What kind of change will just 5 years bring to the campus we know today?
  • How can campuses use their existing real estate more efficiently?
  • What are factors creating change?
  • What sources of resistance can we anticipate?
  • What will changing student demographics impact?
  • Will we still be talking about sustainability?
  • Who is a user of the campus in the future?
