SCUP's Annual Fund

You bring innovative ideas and pioneering solutions forward through the SCUP Fellows Program.  

Launch A Planning Leader!

Thank you! Your contribution makes the SCUP Fellows Program possible. This is SCUP’s initiative to recognize and develop leaders who will build the body of higher education planning knowledge.

During the course of their fellowship year, SCUP Fellows research a planning initiative of their choice, and they share the outcomes and lessons from their research with SCUP’s constituency at the conclusion of their fellowship.

Public-Private Partnership (P3) Performance for Higher Education was the research topic selected by SCUP Fellow Nicolas de Salaberry, Director of Planning and Development at Ryerson University. P3 procurement models for built infrastructure have been applied to a diverse range of higher learning projects. Nic’s research was to better understand P3 models and learn how they have performed, and generate useful lessons for how P3 models can be applied with desired outcomes. His final research paper will be shared here in late May. SCUP Fellow research covers a diversity of planning knowledge.

Why I Gave

SCUP's Philanthropic Arm

The team that manages the Annual Fund is SCUP's Advancement Committee, dedicated to helping higher education leaders unleash innovative and enterprising solutions through their development and fundraising efforts. Our committee chair, Adam Wyatt, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs at Augusta University, was one of our inaugural SCUP Fellows.

"As we look to the future, we will continue to build your support and identify new programs that have value for our membership and the society. We will create a culture of philanthropic giving to help SCUP flourish and stay at the forefront of higher education planning."
