Philadelphia University received its second consecutive APPA Award for Excellence in Facilities Management at the 2014 APPA Annual Conference in San Diego July 21-23.
“This award is a validation of our commitment to running efficient, well-managed and sustainable campus operations,” said Tom Becker, associate vice president for operations. “We’re very pleased to be recognized for the second time as being among the best in the nation in higher educational facilities management.”
The award, which is valid for five years, was last given to PhilaU in 2009. The Award for Excellence is APPA’s highest institutional honor and has been awarded to such prestigious facilities as the Smithsonian Institution in the past.
APPA is a professional organization for facilities managers at educational institutions.
