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.

Plan and Align Improvement Efforts Across Departments

Abstract: Many institutions are engaged in concurrent, overlapping institutional change initiatives. Being able to plan and align improvement efforts while including all stakeholders without duplicating effort requires new tools and skills. We will share how Olympic College used the planning for a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to design improvements in our student-facing systems. You will practice different techniques and tools to visualize institutional processes and identify alignment. We will discuss the use of traditional business management tools to map institutional structures, create cross-departmental capacities, and guide cross-functional teams.

Moving Forward When Others Are Moving Backward

Abstract: Do you remember the last time you planned a comprehensive project and everyone was with you? Oh—never?

Problem-Solving Skills

Identifying and Using Your Team's Creative Strengths

Abstract: A big issue in projects and committees are the conflicts and stalemates that occur when team members don't understand each other's thought processes and decision-making tools. Understanding different ways that people process information and approach problems can help teams work together and get problems solved faster. This session will outline different creative toolsets—specific skill sets and problem-solving approaches – that we all have in our repertoire but often don’t use. Come learn how these tools can bolster your innovation, help you identify and leverage the creative strengths of your teammates and colleagues, and keep your approaches to problem solving fresh.

Incorporating Critical Race Theory in Physical Planning

Learn from Portland Community College's ongoing exploration of what it means to apply Critical Race Theory to the built environment.

Including CRT in the use and design of physical space is new and, in some ways, unknown. Learn from PCC's ongoing exploration of what it means to apply CRT to the built environment. We'll discuss how we're rethinking planning and programming activities to encourage more diverse contributions that result in spaces that support all students.
