Come celebrate 25 years with your
North Atlantic regional SCUPers!
Each spring for the past 24 years, SCUP’s North Atlantic Region has sponsored a conference to explore current themes and challenges in higher education planning. For our 25th anniversary conference, we want to look at the practice of higher education planning itself. How has planning evolved as a tool for informed decision-making, and for understanding the consequences of choices?
"Strengths and Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats: The Practice of Planning in Higher Education"

Registration (4pm - 6pm) and the Opening Reception (5pm - 7pm) on Wednesday will be at the MIT Faculty Club.
All conference sessions will be held at MIT's Stata Center.
At its inception, the design of MIT'S interconnected buildings fostered collaboration, blurring lines among academic departments. Over time, however, the growth of the rectilinear campus and its increasing number of students, faculty, staff, and visitors traveling the Infinite Corridor made leaving one's door open to colleagues impossible.
Architect Frank O. Gehry's challenge was to design a building that could house together the intelligence sciences and its researchers, who shared many of the same goals, within an open environment that encourages intellectual and social interaction. In the spirit of the early days of MIT, the Stata Center offers residents variations on a neighborhood scheme, facilitating cooperation and exchange of information among groups of researchers. Despite the building's complex exterior, the interior concept is simple: space for work that needs privacy or acoustic separation is set away from the common areas, while collaborative working spaces, lounges, and kitchens abut public areas.
