Mission Statement

The Higher Education Facilities Management Alliance (HEFMA) is a group of University professionals who through cooperative sharing of knowledge and resources support and assist members with achieving the innovative, effective and efficient use of campus facilities and space toward the fulfillment of individual and collective institutional goals. 


Campus facilities and space are an integral and expensive resource that has a dramatic impact on the ability of higher education institutions to accomplish our primary missions of instruction, research and public service.

The innovative, effective and efficient use of the campus facilities and the environment is a shared goal among member institutions and all of higher education.

The innovative, effective and efficient use as well as the creation of institutional facilities and work environments, conducive to the missions of higher education, is a complex and continually evolving process.  This process must include the use of data analysis in decision making processes, creativity in problem solving, innovative experimental applications to address changing trends in higher education and respect for individual institutional cultures and priorities.

Each HEFMA member has knowledge, experiences and competencies that are invaluable to member institutions and higher education in the United States in general.

Each HEFMA member has a responsibility to provide leadership and consultation services about best practices toward improvement of the facilities planning and space management practices to address the changing trends in higher education.
