Launching the Next Generation of Planning Leaders
What new insights, best practices, or transformative direction could your research bring to higher education planning?
The SCUP Fellows program is designed to strengthen higher education leaders who seek to carry out new research that contributes to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning. Fellows receive a unique professional development opportunity and make an important contribution to the higher education planning community.
Research topics that will receive priority consideration for 2022.
SCUP Fellows will initiate and complete a research project that contributes to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning and share the outcomes of their project at the conclusion of their fellowship at SCUP’s Annual Conference and through a final report.
- Academic planning
- Diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) in planning
- Campus planning and design (integrated physical planning on campuses)

Two SCUP Fellows will be selected to participate in the one-year fellowship. The program is open to members and nonmembers alike.
