Southern 2022 Regional Conference (Rescheduled)

February 8-10, 2023
Registrants may access session slides on the program page.

Following SCUP’s highly successful in-person 2021 Southern Regional Conference in Knoxville where we reset, reconnected, and reignited our passions and efforts in integrated planning, we look forward to continuing the positivity, momentum, and collaboration this year in Tampa!

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn from their peers about new and ongoing efforts to effect positive change in all aspects of the campus, from academic programming to the built environment. Join us to discover how you can create a more resilient future state of higher education through thoughtful, engaging, and innovative integrated planning.

In Sharper Focus: Student Success and Student Experience

While this year’s conference program will explore integrated planning through many different lenses, the ultimate goal of integrated planning—and the mission of every institution—is to support students in their educational journey. In the wake of a pandemic that highlighted disparities in student access and outcomes, mental health and resiliency, representation and advocacy, we are sharpening our focus on supporting student success and creating a better student experience.

Keynote presentations will share lessons learned regarding: student success and experience, including health, wellness, engagement, and satisfaction; how two years of hybrid and remote education is challenging our past notions of what a resilient, integrated institutional plan looks and feels like; and the importance of the connections between institutions, students, faculty, and community partners within the future of higher education.

We look forward to hosting you in downtown Tampa along the Hillsborough River, home of the University of Tampa, University of South Florida, and Hillsborough Community College!

SCUP is where planning comes together.
