Strategic planning doesn’t have to be painful.

Bring up the topic of strategic planning and you often get a lot of pained looks and audible groans. Some may recount an experience where a lot of time and resources went into producing a glossy document that sits on someone’s shelf. It doesn’t need to be this way.

Integrated planning = successful strategic planning.

There is an alternative, integrated planning. Integrated planning engages all areas of an institution to work together toward a common vision. Done well, it is not a one-time event but a durable framework to create the infrastructure for institutional thriving. When optimized, integrated planning links resources, processes, and people with an institution’s mission, vision, and core values.


In this webinar, we will preview a partnered event brought to you by SCUP, NACAS, and ACUHO-I that examines how using the SCUP Integrated Planning Model—a strategic and operational planning process tailored for the complexities and challenges of institutions of higher education—will help you create a solid foundation at your institution for planning for both the short- and long-term.

Be ready for Fall 2021 and beyond.

We’re excited to announce a new tool coming in February that will help you engage cross-functional planning teams on your campus to help you plan for Fall 2021 and beyond. Stay tuned for more information.
