Learning Resources

Where planning comes together. T​he power of SCUP is its community. We learn from one another, sharing how we’ve achieved success and, maybe more importantly, what we’ve learned from failure. SCUP authors, produces, and curates thousands of resources to help you prepare for the future, overcome challenges, and bring planning together at your college or university.

Passive House Design and Residence Halls

The Perfect Pairing

The session will discuss the basics of Passive House (PH) design, how it can both save energy and improve the quality of the interior environment. The presenters will illustrate how Passive House design has been incorporated from both a design and administrative standpoint at the new residence hall at the University of Toronto Scarborough.
Abstract: Discover how Passive House design was incorporated into the design of UTSC’s 750-bed residence hall and dining facility; helping the University to meet its sustainability and health & wellness goals. Embracing this high-performance design protocol for student residences of any size will align three goals for any campus: sustainability, student health, and bottom-line financial performance.

Preservation of your historic facilities can also be an important part of your long-term plan for a sustainable future for your campus and the planet. Upkeep, renovation, and repurposing of existing structures are seen by many as an essential part of flattening the carbon curve. We will consider examples of successful efforts to integrate sustainability, preservation, and practical re-use of older facilities.

Great Days in New Ways!

Using COVID-19 to Push Sustainability Forward

This webinar will discuss finding ways to keep sustainable packaging for different styles of service, operational hurdles for trash pickup, and how to tell your campus' story to keep sustainability programs alive. Learn how speed, safety, and sustainability can coexist, as well as how food waste and food insecurity have been affected as a result of COVID-19, and what can be done to combat them.
Abstract: Many campuses have been forced to rapidly adjust dining options as a result of COVID-19, which has required creative solutions to continue offering students safe options despite limited operations. Unfortunately, single-use plastic containers have only become more prevalent throughout global food service operations in an effort to reduce spreading the virus, but this has resulted in a backslide for campuses' sustainability efforts.
