Results are in for the 2014-15 APPA/NACUBO Key Facilities Metrics survey! In total, 279 colleges and universities of all types and regions participated in this second year of the survey. Results reflect five key (and simple) elements that readily come from vendor or utility bills, and will aid campus leadership in knowing the basic facilities data needed to improve strategic planning, as well as know their institution’s waste output and carbon footprint. The 2015-16 survey will open in September and close December 12, 2016.
