SCUP 2020 Annual Conference

July 2020


The SCUP 2020 Annual Conference scheduled for July 19-21 Cleveland, OH has been canceled.

This decision was an incredibly difficult one to make, but ultimately our top priority is your safety and wellbeing. After closely monitoring the CDC, WHO, state and federal government guidelines, and engaging in many conversations with speakers, members, corporate partners, and conference vendors, it became clear that it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel this year.

What’s Next?
We recognize the impact the Coronavirus pandemic has on our community; we are all facing unprecedented challenges. We are committed to helping our community create the integrated planning solutions that can address these challenges.

We are planning a virtual learning experience to be delivered at the end of July. In addition to the strategies and planning models your colleagues prepared for the annual conference, this virtual event will feature content and expertise that can help your institution in its COVID-19 recovery planning. Details about this virtual learning experience will be announced by the second week in June.

Beyond this virtual event, we are launching new products and services that can help your institution in this time:

  • Voices from the Field  is a series of interviews with institutional leaders about their responses to COVID-19
  • Coffee Chats are informal, peer-to-peer conversations led by SCUP members
  • Our COVID-19 page curates relevant resources from SCUP and other organizations
  • A scenario planning guide and toolkit is in development
  • Coaching calls available (timely problem-solving advice)

Next Steps
If you are already registered, we encourage you to hold onto your registration so it can be applied to our July virtual event. We are certain this new program will offer the same exceptional high standard of content you always expect from SCUP events and programs, and in a flexible, convenient format.

In the meantime, continue the connection with the SCUP community through the:

Stay healthy and keep doing the great work you do for your institution, community, and SCUP.

Where Planning Comes Together.

SCUP’s Annual Conference is where higher education leaders share their experiences on how to meet the rapid pace of change and competition. Our community unites to share insights, best practices, and tools to help planning come together on your campus or in your organization.

“SCUP is where integrated planning solutions happen.”

Thank you to the higher ed leaders who submitted a proposal! We look forward to sharing your proven integrated planning strategies with the rest of the community.
