We are more than just community buildings.  We are community builders.

At LEARNING X LIVING we believe there is more to the business of student housing than economic models, capacity building and development projects. We believe our collective success lies at the intersection of living and learning. Created for clients of CAMPUS ASSETS – past, present, and future – the LXL blog will reflect on current topics, challenges and opportunities facing the post-secondary eco-system. We will focus on leadership issues, emerging trends and on making a lasting contribution to the new ABCD’s of higher education – Asset Based Community Development.

Each blog post will be broken down into three sections – CONCEPT, CONNECTION & CANDOUR. This is our method of curating content that becomes additive to the lives and careers of our readers. We will feature original content, share highlights from relevant reports and research, and interview key stakeholders to round out an objective and values-based publication.
