SCUP Planning Institute

Is your strategic plan working? Does everyone on your campus know what strategic planning means?
Strategic, integrated planning moves everyone in the same direction—towards the achievement of your institution’s vision and mission.
SCUP’s Planning Institute will help you build a campus-wide planning culture using the SCUP Integrated Planning Model, tailored for the complexities and challenges of higher education institutions—in a hands-on, collaborative environment.
Using the SCUP Integrated Planning Model, you will develop 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 planning culture.
