Navigating the complexities of implementing change can be daunting. Change often demands a structured approach, and maturity models offer just that. They provide a consistent framework for organizations to assess, plan, and execute change effectively. In the context of integrating health and sustainability into educational facility operations, understanding and utilizing a maturity model can pave the way for a healthier, more sustainable future for students, staff, and the broader community.
Enabling Transformative Change in Educational Facilities: An Introduction to Maturity Models
Being a facility management executive in 2023 is no easy task. The modern facility executive must maintain a delicate balance; from providing excellent customer service, being responsive to building users and the staff, and ensuring that supply chain issues are minimized to maintain operational success — all while juggling these issues within mostly slim operational budgets. Here’s how the University of Georgia FMD uses the HGSC program to support employees.
We’re excited to announce Healthy Green Schools & Colleges’ Fall Virtual Summit, an event designed to connect facilities professionals in the HGSC program, sponsors, and partners to share insights and foster collaborative problem-solving in the effort to integrate health and sustainability into day-to-day facilities operations and management in K-12 and higher education institutions.
HGSC is seeking K-12 districts and higher education institutions to join a group of early adopters to provide feedback and help shape program elements as they are being developed.
