The University of Texas at Permian Basin Growth and the Impact of Campus and Community Partnerships
The University of Texas Permian Basin, located in the Odessa-Midland region of West Texas, is an innovative, responsive, university that thinks large and lives locally. UTBP and Odessa have symbiotically thrived on the support of collaboration between research, job creation, and industry – developing leadership in engineering, finance, economics, trade, and commerce regionally and internationally. As a true local partner to the community of Odessa, UTPB has sought out collaborative, mutually beneficial partnerships including the Noel Performing Arts Complex on the Midland Campus, the Athletics Fields Partnership on campus land holdings, and now the market-study of a mixed-use P3 development with retail, housing, parking, and a community serving arena and convocation center at the southwest corner of campus. Together in this panel, we will discuss with UTPB campus leadership, and planning advisors the future of a mutually supported development framework to support the growth of the community and university through collaborative public and private partnership initiatives.

University Data Center Infrastructure
Student and faculty privacy and security have long been of paramount importance to universities, and never more than in the age of remote learning. In this session, we will discuss data center security, and how control, location, and management play a role in security. The panel will also review the institutional benefits and disadvantages of university controlled data centers, operational considerations, co-tenancy versus single user tenancy, and research and learning opportunities. We will follow this overview with a look at the DataBank ATL1 project at Georgia Tech University, a public-private partnership that houses Georgia Tech's supercomputer and serves other southern schools throughout the U.S.

On-Campus Hotels – The Benefits, Strategies, and Opportunities of the P3 Model
The panel will examine the benefits and strategies of P3 hotel models on a stand-alone basis and also as part of a mixed–use development for campuses. Private financing and operations for operating hotels on campuses add an attractive method of providing a number of hotel amenities for schools, colleges and universities bringing knowledgeable developers and operators to provide P3 opportunities to these campuses. These developers are well connected to well operated hotel flags utilizing national booking systems and high quality operations and can provide on-campus rooms for visiting athletic teams, a venue for a variety of meetings, recruiting of students and faculty, guest faculty as well as a destination for local events utilizing meeting room and dining facilities and other public spaces. They can also provide a training ground for diversity initiatives in hotel management and operations. These facilities also can provide an opportunity for revenue sharing with the institution. The panel will consist of knowledgeable P3 professionals, developers and consultants with experience in hotel developments focused on campus destinations.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
