Charleston, S.C. — As Greystar’s University Partnerships platform exceeds $1.7 billion in awarded projects, the company is making moves to accommodate its current and future growth. Julie Skolnicki has been promoted to senior managing director, University Partnerships, and will lead the platform as it continues to scale nationally. Greystar’s University Partnerships leadership team is comprised of three regional leaders: Jared Everett for the West; Jason Taylor for the Northeast and Patrick Parsons for the Southeast. Mark Grambergs leads the implementation of the platform’s large, multi-phased projects.
Greystar has active university partnerships with Sacramento State University, Salisbury University, University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth, Mississippi State University and Lehigh University. Greystar also has a $164 million public-private partnership at California State University Sacramento. The new housing project will include 284 units with 1,100 beds in six four-story residential buildings and a one-story clubhouse.
“Public-private partnerships have been instrumental in helping colleges and universities address the critical need for student housing infrastructure while preserving funds for other important initiatives, and the opportunity to grow this business line was central to our decision to acquire EdR last year,” says Bob Faith, founder, chairman and CEO of Greystar. “As demonstrated by its impressive development pipeline, we expect this platform to serve as a material driver of growth as we scale nationwide. We have full confidence in Julie and her team’s ability to advance our strategic priorities in this regard.”
