I am interested in starting a University. Any idea where I should start?

I would like to start a institution of higher learning, but have close to no idea where I should start. I know I need to have a large sum of cash, and I know getting accredited is a pain in the butt, but other than that I have no idea.

Gig Harbor, WA

I'll take the Maintenance Contract on the building and grounds. Find property and build on it.

That's a quite ambitious prospect. I wouldn't even know where to start.

Find some land, hire an architect, Landscaper and contractor, design the layout, get the permits, buy your materials and start building.

Then, when it's all built, hire me and I will maintain it all for you.

In order to be considered a University, you have to have a faculty, a swimming pool, a field, a gymnasium and a few other things.

I was wondering if there were any teachers or professors on this forum who could help and give any ideas. I have a nice spot in Central Arkansas that I could start building on.

If I may so bold as to offer a bit of advice.

I'm an employer and trainer.

We could care less if you graduated from college unless you are our accountant. We look for people who are trainable and follow instruction with a bit of knowledge of what they are doing.

It's extremely hard to find good hard workers who take pride in what they do. THOSE are the professionals I want.

So.... I would invest in a Technical College or a Vocational School.

Start small and aim high.

BTW, Gig Harbor, WA also needs a few coin operated laundry mats and more gas stations.

If you got money to make money. You need to look at those.

If I had money, I would start a restaurant on the waterfront called "Dave's Famous Fish N' Chips".

They don't have that here either, yet, it's a fisherman's town... ???

It's still small here. 40,000 people. But growing very fast. Service businesses like the one I'm in are BIG time here. 15 years ago... Not sure of the numbers now, Gig Harbor was the number one service user in the State of Washington and number 5 in the Nation.

It's only grown since then.

Rich people with big houses and properties retire here. There is a need for services.

I am a Master Window Cleaner. I am in charge of all labor and training in my company and we are hiring again. Maybe you misunderstood. I am number 2 in the company. Without me, the company would not survive. So, I'm not just a window washer. I'm a Home maintenance Pro and I run crews.

We do much more than just window cleaning. Window cleaning is only about 40% of our business.
