State of Mississippi Campuses Step Up to the Challenge
Hug, Jack
Facilities Manager, v26 n1 p36-41 Jan-Feb 2010
Making the right decisions at the right time is critical. Following through on those decisions is challenging and can take courage. One example of a group of institutions and facility management professionals stepping up to the task and having the courage to challenge the status quo is the State of Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL). Everybody knows that the organizations that produce excellence are those that continuously improve. Success, the kind that leads to great facility services, is built on the foundation of a huge amount of hard work over many years. APPA recognizes, congratulates, and thanks the IHL universities for their contribution of knowledge and experience in conducting the Facilities Management Evaluation Program (FMEP) at all State of Mississippi State Universities. The IHL as a system of higher education consists of a mixture of universities with challenging environments and settings that contain all of the complex elements requiring consistent application of professional facilities management practices. Because of the institutional focus on achieving and sustaining a leadership position in education, these requirements and demands for high-quality campus facilities and facilities services is rigid and persistent. This article takes a look at the campuses evaluated.
