Case Studies College and University

Mark Dudgeon – Columbus State Community College

Mark Dudgeon might be an oftentimes overlooked but vital cog at Columbus State Community College, overseeing nearly 1.5 million square feet of facilities space that so many folks would take for granted—unless something’s on the blink or out of place. Thankfully, that’s rarely been the case since the 42-year-old Dudgeon became director of operations within […]

David Handwork – Arkansas State University

When a person interviews for a job, it is said to take just three seconds for the interviewer to develop an opinion of him or her. The same pretty much holds true for high school seniors pondering where to continue their education, says the man entrusted with tending to the aesthetics and facilities at Arkansas […]

Leighton Mitchell – NYU Tisch School of The Arts

What long had served as the administrative headquarters for North America’s largest public transit operation would not be ideal for the teaching and practices of an arts institution. At least not without a major repurposing. Which is what the big boxlike 13-story structure on Brooklyn’s Jay Street has been undergoing since 2012—the last few years […]

Steven Pecic – Wayne State University

Uprooting a brick house that is a campus landmark was not in his plans when Steven Pecic arrived at Detroit’s Wayne State University in 2006. Then again, neither was overseeing the entire facility’s operational portfolio and maintenance of the campus, or participating in the construction of the $65 million project that takes the place of […]

David Reynolds – University of North Texas

Five years ago, the Sack ‘N Save at the corner of Wilshire and Avenue C in Denton, Texas, looked like any mid-sized grocery store: meat and produce around the perimeter, aisle upon aisle of food and household wares in the middle, all of it illuminated by a battery of fluorescent lights. Should a former customer […]

John Morris – College of Charleston

Walking around the campus, hand in hand with his wife, John Morris is mesmerized. Time stands still on the quad where tawny late afternoon light bathes the classic historic homes that make up the College of Charleston. Soft Spanish moss gently sways in a subtle breeze from trees that have grown here for hundreds of […]

Sameer Kapileshwari – Florida A&M University

A mechanical engineer with a master’s from the University of Texas and undergrad credentials from Pune University in his native India, Sameer Kapileshwari raised eyebrows among his colleagues when he left a plum private-sector position to direct and manage facilities in academia 17 years ago. “My friends would ask why I’d go to such a […]

Vassar College

The common denominator is everyone on campus—students, faculty, administrators, maintenance employees—has to eat, and they all agree it should be a pleasant experience. It hadn’t been that unpleasant at Vassar College; it just could have been better. The private liberal arts school in Poughkeepsie, New York, has long prided itself for forward thinking, but somehow […]
