Many strategic planning models don’t work in higher education because they’re not designed for higher education. Strategic planning processes designed for corporations or non-profits don’t account for higher education’s complex environment and the unique challenges it faces.
The SCUP Integrated Planning Model is different. It has been developed exclusively for higher education. Our model will help individuals, teams, and institutions solve their thorniest problems. When you use the SCUP Integrated Planning model, you will get an accurate picture of your external environment, ask hard but necessary questions, and build actionable plans. The result? You’ll do more than implement a strategic plan. You’ll foster a campus-wide culture of institutional planning that is future-proof and sustainable.
This workshop guides you through the foundations of the SCUP Integrated Planning Model. After each workshop, you will go back to your campus with tangible takeaways and tools that you can use to grapple with practical problems.
