As a part of its agreement with the university, Hobsons will be opening one satellite campus on the university's behalf each year. Those campuses will be patterned after the university's north campus.

Located at NE 122 and Broadway Extension, the university's north campus opened last year. The campus only offers evening courses for working adult students.

Shoe said the firm is already working on a satellite campus in Dallas. The university has a strong recruiting presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, he said, so the area is a natural fit for a campus.

University officials have looked at a number of other areas, including Nashville, Tenn., as candidates for satellite campuses, Fozard said. University officials are also considering a number of other locations in the eastern part of the country.

The university also hopes to place satellite campuses overseas, Fozard said.

Because Hobsons has operations based in Australia and the United Kingdom, the firm is in a position to be able to help the university with that goal, he said.
