something new under the summer sun ”¦ and fall too


Last summer, we journeyed to Canton, Ohio and Malone University. The University was facing challenges with enrollment, facility needs, and limited resources. A fresh approach to facilities planning was needed. Our new Campus Enhancement Plan provided a unique and cost effective process that quickly identified those facilities improvements that will have the greatest impact on campus, specifically related to recruitment and retention.

The Campus Enhancement Plan, or CEP, has since been embraced by several more campuses and will be featured in educational sessions at CACUBO (September 29 in Chicago) and EACUBO (October 6 in Baltimore) this fall.

David King, President of Malone University, had this to say about the process:

I would like to thank Derck & Edson for its excellent and personal facilitation of our Campus Enhancement Plan process. Your adept navigation between the campus’ short-term enhancement needs and opportunities to improve the prospective student visit and on-going student experience was excellent. The result is a very helpful and practical tool as we plan and prioritize for the future and is already proving very valuable as we engage Malone’s friends and donors around a clarified vision for the future.
