Tough Times Breed BOLD Ideas

HEFF is a community for senior facilities leaders from the nation’s top colleges and universities.

Reimagine the future of Facilities

Higher education is in the midst of a sea change. Challenges brought by the pandemic will have an impact for years to come, accelerating the major transformations facilities leaders were already grappling with.

From advancements in technology, shifts in real estate needs, and major disruptions in funding, higher education will continue to evolve at an accelerated pace during this next decade. It is now more critical than ever to come together with industry peers to navigate this disruption underway.

HEFF was created to facilitate that essential connection, bringing together senior higher education leaders responsible for capital planning, design, construction, and facilities with leading suppliers & service providers in a collaborative setting.

Whether in person or virtually, our gatherings feature a relevant balance of thought-provoking content along with the opportunity to identify new partners for upcoming projects and initiatives.

Having access to community, insights, and innovative solutions will be vital on this journey. We’re committed to producing experiences that deliver the things you need.



Let’s build something better, together.
