In honor of Perry Chapman’s passion for developing and sharing knowledge and his commitment to integrated planning and interdisciplinary collaboration, a prize of $10,000 will be awarded annually from 2012 through 2016. This prize funds research in the planning and design of institutions of higher education. The prize is intended to further the research, development, and dissemination of emerging knowledge to improve campus environments in support of their institution’s mission.
SCUP is grateful to The Hideo Sasaki Foundation for its support of The Perry Chapman Prize.
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.
