About the Society for College and University Planning | SCUP Links | Scoop.it


This SCUP resource is very new and will be evolving daily. Please use the "Suggest" tab to share a link with us and thousands of colleagues.


The Society for College and University Planning (SCUP), which was established in 1965, is a community of senior, higher education leaders who are responsible for, or are involved in, the integration of planning on their campuses and for the professionals who support them. SCUP is an affiliate of the University of Michigan's School of Education.


Members look to SCUP to find ways to successfully integrate the institution's mission in nto their academic plan, and then seek to integrate all other kinds of planning on campus in support of the academic plan.


SCUP’s unique strength is that it facilitates opportunities for its members to share best practices about integrated planning for higher education. For example:



SCUP supports integrated planning that is holistic, systemic, and crosses functional and operational boundaries.


SCUP believes that effective integrated planning is rewarding, e.g., diverse issues are addressed and implications are understood. These are the attributes of successful, integrated planning.
