Membership Committee

The SCUP Membership Committee works to create more opportunities for the higher education community to connect, engage, and continue the dialogue that will help every institution define its future. With an eye toward expanding our community, the Membership Committee connects members and non-members alike at SCUP and industry events, reminding us all of the value in expanding the conversation within and beyond our current membership.

The Membership Committee and the work of our volunteers support SCUP’s strategic plan adopted by the board of directors. The committee’s efforts support the following initiatives and may include personal outreach to current and lapsing members:

  • Strategy: Community Building – Develop approaches that broaden our communities and SCUP’s reach.
