Webinar Description:

It has become increasingly common for colleges and universities to partner with private parties and other entities to develop, construct, and operate student housing. Such privatization can provide significant financial and other advantages, but it also can present unique legal and business considerations. This free 60-minute webinar, presented by the Higher Education Council of the Employment Law Alliance (www.ela.law), focuses on the advantages and disadvantages, as well as the risks and benefits, of working with private parties to develop, own and/or operate student housing. The speakers will also provide insight and guidance on:

  • Structure alternatives
  • Protecting the school’s interests
  • Foundation-owned projects
  • Credit impacts
