SCUP

Mid-Atlantic Virtual Regional Conference

March 8-12, 2021

Join us for SCUP’s Mid-Atlantic 2021 virtual Regional Conference. 

The 2021 program will offer you the opportunity to participate over the course of five consecutive afternoons, giving you the morning to attend to your daily responsibilities and leaving the afternoon to be SCUP focused. You’ll get re-energized through community connections, fill your strategy toolbox with valuable lessons learned and other tools, and get the perspectives you need to keep your planning on track and aligned!

Conference Format.

Each day will feature a keynote presentation from a different Mid-Atlantic “host” institution representing the diversity of the region’s colleges and universities. To accompany these keynotes, we will be selecting timely and relevant concurrent sessions from our open call for proposals.

You’re Invited.

Share your planning strategies, experience, and expertise! We’re looking for case studies of successes and challenges, explorations of emerging trends and novel approaches, outcome studies, or historical comparisons.

Integrated Planning Comes Alive.

The need for integrated planning on campuses has been gaining momentum over the last several years as higher education has been experiencing unprecedented upheaval. With response to rapid advancements in educational technology, increasing costs, pressure to demonstrate relevance, demands for more equitable access, and the need to limit our impact on the environment. And now with the addition of a worldwide pandemic and increasingly urgent calls to address racial injustice, integrated planning becomes that much more important. 

Planning For the Long Run.

Change and adaptation is happening so rapidly on our campuses this fall that it’s difficult to predict which topics will be foremost on our minds come next spring. In this regard, we encourage proposal submissions on a wide range of topics. While it is likely that today’s conditions will affect almost every area of higher education, we hope to maintain focus on issues that have been and will continue to be important over the long run.

We look forward to seeing your work!
