3:15-4:15 pm A Principled Journey: USF’s Morsani College of Medicine
Steve Lafferty (USF), TBD, TBD

It’s a cliché, but true … the journey often matters as much or more than the destination.  But what if the journey was better, more collaborative, and actually helped the destination exceed expectations?
Prior to even hiring its Design/Build team, the University of South Florida established a set of guiding principles for the creation of its new Morsani College of Medicine + Heart Institute in Tampa.  This turned out to be a wise decision, as the team returned to those principles during design and construction to facilitate decision-making, break a tie, or otherwise solve a problem.  Hear from USF and key members of the team, who will share examples of how the guiding principles allowed for a successful journey despite detours, roadblocks, and other challenges.
