Together Again: Reimagining the Future
Welcome to the 37th Annual SCUP North Atlantic Regional Conference!

After an extraordinary period of remote and hybrid learning and virtual conferences, we return to the University of Massachusetts Amherst campus, located in the knowledge corridor of the Connecticut River Valley, to meet again in person and celebrate institutional resilience. Higher education planning leaders will share their stories of integrated planning solutions for solving the pressing problems of our time and explore innovative new ideas for reimagining the future of higher education.

Join us for an exciting reunion and leave inspired!

Keeping you safe.

We are planning for, and excited to welcome attendees to our in-person annual conference, while acknowledging the complexities of planning a safe and effective in-person, indoor conference that meets new and emerging university, local, state, and federal regulations. We are monitoring local and state regulations as well as guidelines from the CDC and WHO. As these regulations and guidelines change frequently we will provide more information to registrants as we approach the conference.

We and the University of Massachusetts Amherst expect that all conference attendees will be fully vaccinated according to CDC guidelines for full vaccination or arrive with a negative covid test taken less than 72 hours prior to arrival. Attendees will be required to demonstrate their status by showing their vaccination cards or negative covid test results to pick up their badge. Masks are no longer required for all indoor activities.

Currently, there is no proof of vaccination or negative Covid test to enter a restaurant in Amherst.

Masks are still required to aboard public transportation (including PVTA buses) and in healthcare facilities (including University Health Services, Public Health Promotion Center, and Center for Counseling and Psychological Health). Masks will also be required in the Center for Early Education and Child Care. Masks are recommended for individuals or anyone in their household who have a weakened immune system or an increased risk for severe illness. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated and boosted should also continue to wear masks indoors. Currently, the SCUP conference will not be located in the areas listed above.

Not able to attend in person? Powerpoints of sessions will be available to you approximately one week after the conference (available for registered attendees only).
