The 2013 Thought Leaders symposium, sponsored in part by DTZ, a UGL company, and Jacobs, focused on the topic of the rising cost of higher education.  More than three dozen higher education leaders--including presidents, provosts, business officers, consultants, association executives, and facilities professionals--participated in a facilitated discussion and work session to identify, prioritize, and recommend solutions on the issues related to the cost of higher education.
