Chicago — The Scion Group has launched Scion Campus Connections, a new strategic initiative aimed at improving collaboration between university and college housing departments and Scion’s off-campus housing teams.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we think about student housing density, dramatically illustrating the fact that it takes both on-campus and off-campus housing sources to meet the needs of the students that we collectively support,” says Rob Bronstein, president and co-founder of The Scion Group. “Scion Campus Connections is a unique collaboration initiative that will promote open communication, robust dialogue and mutual respect for both on-campus and off-campus housing professionals.”
Examples of action items resulting from the Scion Campus Connections program may include joint student programming that aligns with the academic calendar; open forums to identify new student success initiatives; participation in preferred housing programs for students; and master lease agreements to provide flexibility for fluctuating on-campus housing needs. The Scion Group serves more than 58,000 residents in 86 communities at 54 campuses nationwide.
