Institutional Direction Planning Academy

The Institutional Direction Planning Academy helps SCUP identify the issues affecting and impacting higher education. By outlining trends and emerging issues via reports, and reviewing and critiquing proposed sessions for the Annual Conference, academy members provide the direction and insight necessary to spark the critical discussions to help lead higher education forward.

The academy is led by a convener and associate convener who serve two-year terms. Membership in the academy is maintained through active participation in the annual conference review process.
