The Hideo Sasaki Foundation, under the auspices of the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP), seeks to honor the intellectual contributions of M. Perry Chapman.
As the 2008 recipient of SCUP’s K. C. Parsons Founders’ Award for Distinguished Achievement in Higher Education Planning, Chapman was committed to developing and sharing knowledge to advance integrated planning and interdisciplinary collaboration in higher education.
Chapman’s influence on campus planning and design spanned more than four decades. He affected colleagues, institutions, firms, and community organizations through his insight, mentoring, writing, and speaking. He raised the standard of planning theory through research and analysis of the relationship between the campus as a place and its impact on learning and community.
