Breakout Session

Bits & Bricks – A Marriage Made in Heaven šŸ˜‰

Track: Policy & Strategic Planning

Breakout II
10:30 am to 11:30 am

Abstract

In Higher Education today, IT and Facility Departments are more alike than different. Most importantly, in order for either department to succeed, they must plan and work together seamlessly. Combined, these two departments consume, the majority, if not all, of institutionsā€™ capital funding, as such they must both be significantly integrated
into institutionsā€™ strategic plan. In 2011, President Obama laid out his ā€œBetter Building Initiativeā€ investing in innovative clean energy technologies including smart buildings that would be critical to improve the countryā€™s energy efficiency. This breakout session will explore the day-to-day trials and tribulations within the marriage of bits and bricks at Burlington County College.
