Integrated planning is important, but it's not enough—plans must be linked to budgeting and assessment in order to create real change and progress. This collection of SCUP resources will help you learn how to link these three essential processes.
If you want to ensure planning makes a real difference for your college or university, one of the best things to do is link it to resource allocation and assessment processes. It's also one of the hardest things to do.
This collection of SCUP resources will help advance the connections between planning, budgeting, and assessment at your institution. It includes:
An adaptable framework one university used to link assessment, strategic planning, and budgeting Four models for linking budgeting and planning, each based on the budget model your institution employs A step-by-step outline for developing a linked planning and budgeting process Advice for linking planning to a decentralized budgeting model

A Guide for Universities in Africa
Doug and JoEllyn Fountain wrote the book they wish someone had handed them when they began working for eight years with a rapidly growing university in Uganda.
Abstract: “[This] is a complete guide on strategic planning, presenting step by step the 5 major components of an integrated planning process. It is also a most useful, exhaustive, and updated list of definitions; presentation of all components and subcomponents; suggestions of strategies; and well-chosen examples . . . As I continue my work with Francophone universities, some in Africa, it will be my honor and pleasure to be inspired and accompanied by the Fountains’ guide.”
—Roland Proulx, Consultant, Institutional Planning & Strategic Intelligence, University of Montreal
With a heavy use of SCUP resource materials, SCUPers Doug and JoEllyn Fountain have written the book they wish someone had handed them when they began working for eight years with a rapidly growing university in Uganda. “While North American universities are developing LEED certified buildings, we were trying to pave roads and get stable electricity. We looked long and hard for materials and advisors who could help us with basic issues.”
