12:00 PM CASE STUDY: Central Queensland University's Asset Management During its Dramatic 5 Year Growth
CQUniversity has undergone significant growth in the past 5 years. In fact, its 2 year old Cairns campus alone has already reached maximum capacity at 2300 sqm. The University's development model has been based on meeting un-met demand in communities through dual sector facilities, online education, an study hubs. It is also the first university in Australia to receive accreditation by ASHOKA U.
This session will review:
- The University's growth plan: how it develops learning facilities from a single study hub to an entire campus
- The lessons CQUniversity has learnt in asset management and development in order to be the most cost-effective and context appropriate
- How the University has become an important community resource to the cities and town it inhabits, through servicing low SES students
