Mid-Atlantic 2022 Regional Conference

March 9-11, 2022
Charlottesville, VA

Acknowledging History + Defining the Future

Join us in Virginia!

The SCUP 2022 Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference will be in-person at the University of Virginia (UVA)! As the Mid-Atlantic region’s first in-person, post-pandemic conference, we’ve specifically designed this event around an enjoyable on-campus experience. We look forward to having you join us in Thomas Jefferson’s historic Academical Village to share ideas and solutions for the issues facing higher education today.

This year’s conference theme is “Acknowledging History + Defining the Future,” using UVA as a case study to begin a conversation around addressing historical context and moving our institutions forward. Each day of the conference will feature a keynote presentation from different perspectives, including higher education leadership, current university students, and university planners. To accompany these keynotes, we will be selecting timely and relevant concurrent sessions from our open call for proposals.

Share your lessons learned and more.

You are invited to submit your proposal to present a concurrent session at the Mid-Atlantic conference. Proposals may feature case studies of successes and challenges, explorations of emerging trends and novel approaches, outcome studies, or projects that acknowledge, reinterpret, or preserve the past.

As we return to in-person learning and contemplate the lessons learned from a virtual academic year, we have an extraordinary opportunity to reflect on our experiences and consider the future of higher education through integrated planning on our campuses. Higher education continues to define its future with rapid advancements in educational technology, enhanced virtual platforms, increasing costs, pressure to demonstrate relevance, demand for more equitable access, and the need to proactively demonstrate our approach to addressing climate change. While we acknowledge the impact of COVID-19, we want concurrent proposal submissions to focus on the future of higher education planning.

Learn more about the call for proposals and how to submit.
