Welcome to the 36th Annual SCUP North Atlantic Regional Conference!
If planning is about making informed choices to serve the institutional mission, then planning for our “new reality” is having a transformative impact on higher education in North America and around the world. Continuing the SCUP North Atlantic Region’s 36-year tradition of exploring current themes and challenges in college and university planning, the Spring 2021 conference will reflect on how we are transforming and reimagining the future of higher education.
The 2021 North Atlantic Conference is an exceptional opportunity to take advantage of a virtual format that will include all of us in the North Atlantic region—including Canada and Europe—as we seek a great variety of concurrent sessions to inform and support your planning and help your institution survive and thrive. The conference will also offer innovative approaches to virtual networking and tours of new and exciting projects at campuses throughout the region.
