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.

Keynote | When a Building is More Than a Building

Join us in an exploration of how leadership at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville plays a key role in creating welcoming campus spaces.
Abstract: We often think of buildings merely as structures that we design, build, and maintain. Yet in truth, these structures are also places that can make occupants feel a sense of belonging and of 'place' within a community that connects people to one another. Campus buildings that foster a sense of place and community can ignite our imaginations for delivering our institutional missions in new and meaningful ways. Join us in an exploration of how leadership at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville plays a key role in creating these welcoming campus spaces.
