Take A New Approach to Your Goals
All over the country, colleges and universities are struggling to remain competitive and financially viable.

All of this is ultimately distracting them from their core mandate: to provide world-class educational opportunities. A public-private partnership can improve your campus and enrich the lives of the campus community. A true partnership will allow you to:
In my 30 years of working with campuses, I have witnessed many proposals come and go that bring third-party funding to support campus operations and to strengthen balance sheets. From "shared savings" to performance contracting, third-party housing to selling power plants. Many have had some success. Some have failed due to poor alliance of campus and vendor interests. But, nearly all, due to their narrow focus on short-term issues, have not had a meaningful impact for the campus. The Corvias Approach is different. It is a broader more holistic approach that forges a meaningful partnership for the campus housing assets between the university and Corvias. I believe their model is strong. Their demonstrated success with housing is impressive. If the campus needs to release value and monetize its housing assets, understanding Corvias' approach is worthwhile to evaluate as part of a long-term capital asset management strategy.
