Intentional Partnerships

The SCUP 2020 North Central Regional Conference is all about finding your place on the partnership continuum—from higher education institutions to global entities, policymakers, researchers, corporations, as well as philanthropic and community-focused organizations—and forging successful collaborations for the advancement of higher education.

Colleges and universities are creating innovative intentional partnerships with a variety of external groups to help them grow, research, build, merge, adapt, change their operational models, and become more efficient. In this time of rapid change in higher education, we’re inviting you to join us in Chicago for a conversation about intentional partnerships and how we can use them to strengthen our institutions. We welcome proposals discussing all types of collaborations and partnerships across the higher education spectrum.

Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal!

The call for proposal deadline was May 8, 2020

We recognize the world is an uncertain place and we’re all grappling with planning for the future. But now is the time our community needs to share experiences so we can grow stronger and become more resilient. All submissions regardless of your region, travel status, or organization will be considered.
