SCUP 2022 Annual Conference

July 24-26, 2022
Long Beach, CA

Where Planning Comes Together.

This is it!

This is where leaders from across the country and across the campus will come together to share their best integrated planning strategies – leading the way to a path of student success and a bright future for higher education. We want you to be part of it!

The SCUP AC Experience.

You’ll spend 3 days unpacking some of the latest topics such as DEI, post-pandemic the “new normal”, and wellness along with lessons learned over the last 2 years. You’ll walk away with the confidence and tools to begin tough conversations, dig into current practices, and lead your institution toward a culture of integrated planning. We can’t leave out the best part – the people! You’ll meet leaders who are early in their career and seasoned and from all across the campus: academic planning, budget and resource planning, facilities planning, strategic planning, and more!

Be Intentional.

Make this the year to infuse the foundations of integrated planning in your department, unit, and campus-wide! The SCUP Planning Institute will be offered as a pre-and post-conference workshop. Use these workshops to take a deeper dive into the practices that will help sustain your institution and bolster a culture of integrated planning on campus.

“The content of every session I attended was excellent, well presented and stimulating….overall leaving a stronger impression of what the SCUP community offers…”
Past Attendee

The Planning Doesn’t Stop in Long Beach.

If you’re new to SCUP, use this as a launching pad to build relationships with leaders all across the campus and the country. If SCUP has been your community for years, use this time to connect (or re-connect) with at least one person from every planning discipline. Regardless of where we are, we are all facing common issues and crafting creative ways to solve them. Maximize your processes and strategies by breaking down traditional boundaries and creating new partnerships! The SCUP community is here to help!
