Take your institution to a new level by using an integrated planning approach.

While SCUP programs and publications focus on the many different types of planning required for colleges and universities to meet institutional goals, SCUP believes:
The academic plan should serve as the hub of all planning done on campus, and
All planning done on campus should have as a primary goal the enhancement of the learning environment.

An integrated plan. Integrated planning should serve as a road map, guiding your campus toward specific outcomes that support its mission and vision. Good planning sounds simple, but it isn't. Integrated planning is half art and half science. There are many roadblocks to overcome, not the least of which is resistance to change and the lack of resources. But, integrated planning is critical to your institution's effectiveness.
A good plan ensures you’re doing the right work, pursuing the right goals, and doing it the best way when there are always other ways to use your institution's limited resources.
SCUP exists to help its members understand how to bring the best integrated planning to their campuses. Planning sounds so simple but it is difficult do well. Success is the result of a good plan.
