Construction Management Partnerships
The Alliance is excited to be working with some of the top U.S. construction management academic programs to lay groundwork and develop a partnership. The goal of this partnership is to enhance students' experiences by exposing them academically and experientially to roofing as a potential career choice.
This partnership is beginning with three well-known construction management programs: The Department of Construction Management at Colorado State University; the McWhorter School of Building Science at Auburn University and the M.E. Rinker Sr. School of Building Construction at the University of Florida.
The group is advancing roofing as a career option through a three-pronged approach:
- Integrating information about the roofing industry into construction management curricula
- Developing a roofing industry internship program
- Establishing scholarships for construction management students and faculty
Scholarships will be established for students based on developing criteria.
