Board of Directors

As the strategic leaders of our association, the SCUP Board of Directors envisions, shapes, and creates the organization’s future through its vision, mission, and strategic plan. With input from the SCUP membership, the board identifies and prioritizes strategies that will unleash the potential of higher education, ultimately driving value and more opportunities for higher education leaders, inside and outside of the planning community, to learn and connect.

Critical to the board’s role is its exploration of the future environment and relevant issues facing higher education, ensuring that SCUP and its community are united as it prepares for the future that lies ahead.
