The State of Collegiate Athletic Facilities

In a study performed by Mortenson at the 2012 NACDA conference, University professionals described a brave new world of opportunity and challenge brought about by today’s sports facilities.
This report shows that the stadiums and arenas in which higher education institutions compete influence school personas and play an important role in Athletic Department success.
