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. We hope you will join us there to share your stories of integrated planning solutions for solving the pressing problems of our time and explore innovative new ideas for reimagining the future.
Share your experience.
As the premier planning organization for higher education, SCUP champions content that focuses on planning of all types—strategic planning, academic planning, fiscal planning, and physical planning. We are seeking proposals that will help the SCUP community with professional success through the sharing of lessons learned, strategies, and other planning experiences.
In this economic climate that has created challenges for so many colleges and universities, the Society for College and University Planning recognizes that professional development and travel budgets have continued to be reduced or cut. To that end, we are offering a limited number of scholarships to help underwrite costs associated with participating in SCUP events.
Scholarships of up to $500 will be awarded. Preference will be given to members in the region.
To be eligible for the Conference Scholarship, applicants must provide the following:
1. Demonstrate financial need and explain desired benefits from attendance (one paragraph)
2. Optional: A brief statement of support by the institution or organization, such as a supervisor (one paragraph)
The Regional Council Chair will review applications and provide recommendations (ranked based on application criteria). Award recipients may elect whether to (1) receive the award directly or (2) have them paid to their institution/employer, and whether or not to use some of the funds as a waiver of the conference registration fee.

As the premier planning organization for higher education, SCUP champions content that focuses on planning of all types—strategic planning, academic planning, fiscal planning, and physical planning.
We are seeking proposals that will help our members and attendees with their own professional success. We are accepting proposals for 60-minute concurrent sessions – these should include no more than 50 minutes of presentation that includes prompts for meaningful audience engagement and participation, followed by 10 minutes for Q&A.
How is the campus evolving as a community leader in response to crises? How have past events reshaped your organization and its physical space, and how will that impact your future?
Questions to consider for your proposal:
Submissions must be made using SCUP’s online submission tool. The proposal form doesn’t ask for an abstract, title, etc. Rather, it asks you specific questions about the content you are going to present. This gives session reviewers a clear understanding of what you plan to cover during your session.
