Our first guest this year is Lee White, Executive Vice President and Manager of the Education and Non-Profit Finance Group, George K. Baum & Company. Lee is active in all areas of public finance, with a special emphasis on higher education. He is regarded as the industry’s leading expert in the area of privatized student housing finance, and has made numerous presentations over the years for the NACUBO organization.
This is Lee’s second time on our podcast, as he joined up in October of 2013 to talk about the financing aspect of building student housing. Today he joins us to talk about the current financial state of the US higher education system and talked about the topics, “is higher education overbuilt?” and “where are the bright spots?”
