The importance of successful alliances between universities and parent cities becomes critical in pursuing certain facilities projects.  Describes the key players in these alliances, their importance to our universities, and their individual agendas.  The purpose is not to transform facilities professionals into public affairs officers, but to offer guidance in achieving alliances when there are no or poor alliances or when the facilities manager inherits an explosive situation involving a major project.  Discusses acquiring the necessary selling and political skills, rules, and habits.
