Before You Start

The type of project and financing you take on will depend on the size and stage of your school. Certain big decisions you make now will impact your future financial health, the quality of your school building, and potentially, your academic program. The good news is that you have more options now than schools have ever enjoyed before—more choices of development models and a wider variety of experts to advise and guide the process, whether you decide to build and finance the project yourselves or hand it over to a development partner who can build it according to your needs, rent it to you, and eventually sell the facility to you when you're ready to buy.
