Challenges to Meet Pressing Needs

This SCUP event is over.

The SCUP North Central Regional Council invites you to attend the 2003 Regional Conference at the Westin Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario. This year's conference includes 24 concurrent sessions, a preconference workshop on technology in the library, a campus tour, and the opportunity to visit the capital of Canada, a unique and exciting city. We are confident you will find something of interest and benefit that you can take back to your institutions and firms.

Now more than ever, planners are challenged to understand the business of higher education, achieving a balance between being attractive, efficient, and cost-effective as an institution. This year's conference sessions offer new perspectives and innovative approaches on a variety of planning topics to assist you in meeting these demands and expectations.

Visitors to the City of Ottawa can experience the best of both worlds. While the city is a very vibrant community, offering a plethora of non-stop exciting activities, it also has the capability of offering endless activities and attractions to those who would just like to relax and visit the capital city at a slower pace. With an extremely high green space ratio for a major city, the endless parks and bicycle paths offer the opportunity to while away the hours at a much more leisurely pace. Whether your interest is in the hustle and bustle of our open air markets, the Parliament buildings and the Changing of the Guard, the excitement of an NHL hockey game, or if you would just rather stroll the paths along the Rideau Canal, the City of Ottawa offers virtually something for everyone!

But for many, the best part of the conference is the opportunity to network with friends and meet new colleagues. This year provides the additional opportunity to meet members from our expanded region. We hope to greet you personally at the conference and we look forward to sharing new ideas and experiences with you.
