Helping schools, colleges and universities to develop state-of-the-art facilities essential to advancing education and meeting the needs of the 21st century campus.

With the resources to bring projects to fruition more quickly and affordably than most public agencies, Provident can provide much needed housing opportunities for students, faculty, and staff, as well as classrooms, laboratories, and other essential facilities at schools, colleges, and universities. Provident advances education by collaborating with schools, colleges and universities to develop, finance, construct and operate facilities that serve these vital institutions, including those designed for education and research. Provident offers colleges an alternative to conventional site development methods by undertaking the planning, financing, ownership, and operation of properties for the long-term benefit of the institution and its students. We go a step further, offering services and programs designed to help schools, colleges, and universities fulfill their educational mission.

"The capital outlay process is very laborious, but when you need new facilities, you usually need them right now. Provident has been able to accelerate that timeline. The extent to which an organization like Provident can come to the table and partner with a university is a tremendous value added for the institution."
— Dr. Walter Bumphus, President & CEO, American Association of Community Colleges
