Our Future

Your gifts to the SCUP Fund have a collective impact to help develop innovative programs and fuel cutting-edge planning research. Your gift will help accelerate integrated planning methodology, knowledge sharing, and progress.

The SCUP Fund Strategic Action Plan

The first strategic action plan for The SCUP Fund was completed this past spring. Please see our SCUP Fund infographic to learn more about our strategic directions and goals. Our four strategic directions for 2021–2022 in support of the SCUP Strategic Plan are:

  1. Maximize the effectiveness of The SCUP Fund through a sustainable and viable governance structure.
  2. Drive planning innovation and solutions for higher education through new initiatives funded by The SCUP Fund.
  3. Create a long-term plan for the sustainability of the SCUP Fellows Program.
  4. Reinforce a philanthropic culture within SCUP through communication and brand invigoration.

Work has launched toward meeting these goals. A new initiative will be identified in early 2022 that will expand the impact of The SCUP Fund. The selected initiative will be guided by SCUP member surveys and interviews, and SCUP’s strategic direction. How will our Fund drive innovation and impact higher education planning in a new way? We’ll send you an update on our progress after the New Year.

SCUP Fellows Program

Your gifts support the SCUP Fellows program. Your contributions to The SCUP Fund create opportunities for the planning leaders of tomorrow and bring insights and ideas to solve the planning issues of today.

SCUP Fellows bring us a research project that offers an enterprising approach or solution to a current challenge in higher education planning. The SCUP Fellows program is designed to strengthen higher education leaders who seek to carry out new research that will contribute to SCUP’s knowledge base of integrated planning. Their fellowship research could be the catalyst that unleashes fresh thinking, prompts a new strategy, or tackles a tough problem that advances higher education effectiveness. Learn more.

To date, SCUP has benefitted from the research and rich perspectives from 14 SCUP Fellows. Learn more about our most recent fellows and their projects. Sue Gerber and Royce Robertson have completed their written research reports. Erin Johnson, Shannon Dowling, and Angela Foss will share their final research reports in the coming weeks. Watch their webinar presentations, accompanied by their SCUP coaches, on the SCUP Fellows website.

SCUP Southern Region Social and Fundraiser for The SCUP Fund

Our thanks to the event sponsors (Collins Cooper Carusi Architects, OFS, McCarty Holsaple McCarty, Inc, SESCO, Shaw, The Beck Group, and The Christman Company) and the generosity of the event guests.
