The city, the future, and you

The city, the future, and you | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

“Is ‘making do’ the best we can expect in our future? Is the future simply making the best of a bad situation? Will the way forward be reduced to finding a way out?”

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

“The city, the future, and you” is the title of Chapter One, Part One of Glen Hiemstra and Dennis Walsh’ new book. It doesn’t have a title yet, but you can read all of it, in installments, at Futurist.

Hiemstra is the opening plenary speaker at SCUP’s Pacific Region’s 2013 conference March 24–27 at the Auraria Higher Education Center (Denver), Place Making: Strategic Identity + Place Making.

Denver-based conference co-chairs Christine King of JE Dunn Construction and Steven Schonberger of NAC Architecture are excited about the conference kicking off with such a big picture viewpoint. So we thought we’d share parts of Hiemstra and Walsh’ book, ahead of time:

Some people need to know everything before they do anything. They spend their whole life avoiding the unknown, when really they don’t have to know everything, just enough to know enough. Then there’s the “me too” crowd. They don’t think cities have to change anything. They don’t get the new global economic reality. They assume that everything will soon go back to the way it was and all will be well in the end. They’re not about to change a thing. Don’t be one of them. Step out. Make a move. You may not always be right, but the odds are in your favor that you’ll get somewhere.


There’s a shift is coming that’s going to shake the world. ...

Change You Can Believe in? Higher Education over the next Decade | SCUP Links | Scoop.it



A proceeding of the SCUP 2011 Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference at Umass (and other locations nearby). It is available to attendees of the event and as a benefit of membership to all SCUP members:



Presented by: Michael Halleran, Provost, William & Mary, College of William and Mary


Higher education is experiencing a period of intense change, comparable to that experienced during the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries. This change is part of fundamental shifts extending beyond higher education and having a great impact on it. To be able to plan in such an environment, one has to understand what forces are creating these changes at the global, national, and local levels, how they interact and how they affect higher education. With that understanding, it becomes possible to develop plans that can take root in a moving landscape.

Learning, Freedom, and the Web | Anya Kamenetz | July 9, Chicago #SCUP47

Learning, Freedom, and the Web | Anya Kamenetz | July 9, Chicago #SCUP47 | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

The continuing transformation of higher education, with the twin pressures of economics and technological innovation, will challenge colleges and universities to find new efficiencies and specialization, embrace and incorporate a student's personal learning networks and paths, blend experiential and digital approaches, and adopt free and open-source educational resources. The dialogue is an evolving one, but Kamenetz will share her initial findings, and asks you to consider the impact of tuition and student loans, as well as technology and social media, on higher education.


Anya Kamenetz is bringing an entirely unexpected perspective on the future of knowledge, talent, and innovation. An educational futurist and the rare speaker on issues facing Millennials (while actually belonging to this generation), she delivers audiences core insights into change, technology, and talent.

The League Day 2: When Generations Clash | Inside Higher Ed

The League Day 2: When Generations Clash | Inside Higher Ed | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

Dean Dad reports on the League for Innovation in the Community College Conference. SCUP has a booth there, and you'll be able to find a number of SCUP staff and members on hand if you're lucky enough to be there:


"Go to enough panels, and you start to detect themes.


Quick quiz: Community colleges are


a. A movement

b. A daring and audacious bet on democracy

c. An established sector of higher education

d. Dying


As a Gen X’er, I think the answer is c. I don’t remember a world without community colleges. Yes, they’ve grown over the last decade, but the growth was from an already-existing base. Most of the growth that has happened has happened at campuses that were built decades before.


The founding generation – the Terry O’Banions of the world – prefers answer a, and sometimes b. (Their evil twins give answer d.) They believe that community colleges are insurgents, shaking up the world of higher education with their open-door, democratic idealism. To be fair, that was true at one time. It just isn’t anymore."

Clemson's Cooper Library: From Quiet Book Repository to Social Hub

SCUP–47 is higher education's premier planning conference in 2012. Chicago, July 7–11.


A Library Journal article about the SCUP–47 concurrent session, "'Road Map' For Making the Most Rather Than Making Do." When it opened over 40 years ago, Clemson University’s Robert Muldrow Cooper Library was a state of the art facility and architectural focal point of the South Carolina campus. The 184,839 square foot, six-story library retains its architectural prominence, but it has gone from a quiet study and book repository to the campus meeting place and social hub. The library’s vision and mission reflects an engaged and vibrant service mindset in a forward-thinking university.

Asian Institutions Turn to East for Higher Education

Hong Kong universities are expanding on the Chinese mainland to get closer to some of the industries driving the country's growth and to tap into a large pool of research funding.

...

Mandy & Alexandria's curator insight, October 14, 2014 5:16 PM

This article is about Asian education. It falls into the social category because it can be considered "lifestyle". Some of the Hong Kong colleges and universities are being built in the east, forcing to move college-age students there. There are complaints due to this, because not everyone wants to move to the east for a decent education.  

Brittany Ortiz's curator insight, December 1, 2014 5:37 PM

After recently reading an article that India was going to expand there education, its also great to see how East Asia is also wanting to do the same thing. Its great to offer citizens higher education, because they can further there learning. By opening and having higher institutions throughout East Asia and India, there will be many people who will benefit tremendously from it.
