Rusty Walker, LEED AP, AIA is slated to speak at Tradeline's upcoming Strategic Facility and Space Planning for For Science and Research Conference scheduled for Monday-Tuesday, April 20-21, 2015. His session, STEM Growth Via Strategic Levaraging: Private, Local, and Academic Resources, will cover the topic as follows:
"New models for meeting the demand for highly skilled STEM workers expand beyond academic programs to leverage local and private enterprise resources as well – a strategy that will reshape decisions on campus master planning, space programming and utilization, and infrastructure investments. Russell Walker scopes out the lean development model for the Western Illinois Quad Cities campus, an initiative driven by local community partnership, the John Deere Company, and the university. He sets out new cost efficiency benchmarks, program benefits resulting from community involvement and recruitments for STEM disciplines, and the talent payoff for local industry."
