SCUP is where ideas, strategies, and people come together to create integrated planning solutions. Through the expertise and knowledge shared by the SCUP community, institutions are leading the way and building a solid future for higher education.

What We’re Looking For

We seek content that supports and showcases integrated planning practices within higher education. Our community finds value in actionable advice, how-to’s, tools, frameworks, and lessons learned.

Some hallmarks of integrated planning:

  • Cross-functional collaboration: Do people from different departments or functions discuss, decide, and act together?
  • Alignment up, down, and/or sideways: How do institutional priorities and day-to-day actions influence each other? How do decisions in one area of the college or university connect to decisions in another area?
  • Planning linked to resource allocation and assessment/metrics: Does the plan inform resource decisions? Do performance data inform plan decisions?
  • Collaborative governance: Do key stakeholders have a voice in decision making?
  • Future-focused, balancing aspiration with pragmatism: Do you work towards a vision? Are your decisions informed by the realities of the external environment?
