Colleges and universities are being asked to optimize existing resources to deliver innovative new business practices. This session will provide an overview of a new approach to unlocking equity value and explain how two institutions used existing physical and financial resources to collaborate on a shared library service center that advances both of their missions.

Learning Objectives

  • Investigate the process of identifying, evaluating, and executing opportunities to unlock physical and financial resources to deliver higher value.
  • Identify specific non-cash, non-debt balance sheet assets at universities or medical centers that might be candidates for capturing equity value or alternative debt instruments.
  • Recognize and overcome potential roadblocks, including organizational, financial, and legal considerations.
