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.

Quality as Stealth

One college provided a stealthy introduction to total quality management-seen by many faculty as a "corporate" concept-in the development of program review and strategic budget reductions.

From Volume 27 Number 2 | Winter 1998–1999

Abstract: This paper is a case study describing the use of Quality tools-without identifying them ("stealth") to aviod a strong faculty prejudice against Quality as a "corporate" concept-to lead to a task force to address critical budget issues and initiate a strategice program review involving assessment. Using How to Make Meetings Work (Doyle &Straus, 1993) as a guide, the task force successfully concluded the review process operating by consensus, mission-based priciples, and 30 quanitative/qualitative measures.
