Southern Regional Council

Regional councils are where planning comes together, inspiring members to think globally, and act locally. Grown out of the need to support membership, learning, and event development, the five SCUP regions create member connections, while supporting the development of today and tomorrow’s planning leaders.

The Southern Regional Council represents members from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mexico, Mississippi, Oklahoma, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

The Southern Regional Council’s work supports SCUP’s strategic plan adopted by the board of directors. The Council’s efforts support the following initiatives:

Engage our Communities in Creating and Delivering Value

  • Strategy: Engagement – Enhance and expand opportunities to connect individuals, institutions, and organizations that advance higher education.

Deliver Learning that Strengthens and Transforms Higher Education Planning

  • Strategy: Individual Learning – Develop, implement, and continually improve a personalized and competency-driven portfolio of learning products.
  • Strategy: Institutional Support – Develop, implement, and continually improve services to develop institutional planning capabilities.

Enhance Value of the Society through Visibility, Outreach and Strategic Partnerships

  • Strategy: Outreach – Develop a framework to connect and engage with a diverse and dynamic array of institutions and corporations.
