SCUP Pacific Regional Conference 2024

Pacific 2024 Regional Conference

March 18-20, 2024
Seattle, WA
– Registration closes March 8.

Join us at the University of Washington in Seattle!

The University of Washington (UW) Seattle campus, host of the SCUP 2024 Pacific Regional Conference, is situated in an urban core with over two miles of waterfront along Union Bay and a vista towards Mount Rainier. Founded in 1861, the university has cultivated a global perspective and earned its reputation for excellence in education, service, and impact. UW’s commitments to clean energy, student activism, and interdisciplinary learning are integral to the enduring vitality of its campus and community.


The theme of the 2024 Pacific Regional Conference, “Vital”, is a dynamic exploration of critical drivers for higher education with a focus on understanding what is vital for students to thrive.

Our campuses are troves of historical, cultural, and educational heritage and aspiration. We are responsible for helping to ensure their viability for future generations through integrated planning that addresses the defining issues of our time—from the climate crisis and the fight for equal rights to existential questions about the future impacts of AI, aging buildings and infrastructure, and hybrid learning. The concept of vitality inspires us to question what makes campus environments vibrant and able to educate and serve the whole student. How can our institutions celebrate legacy and heritage while evolving to provide a successful future for our campus communities?

We often assess quantitative signals of campus vitality, such as capacity, agility, and longevity. However, campuses are also shaped by qualitative measures of research impact, resilience, and reputation. How might integrated and strategic planning incorporate both quantitative and qualitative realities to frame and define “vitality” for higher education?
