“When the pace of change gets this fast, the only way to retain a lifelong working capacity is to engage in lifelong learning.”
- Thomas L. Friedman, Thank You for Being Late
The pace of change is accelerating. Planning professionals who serve higher education institutions throughout the region are facing new demands and new opportunities. Technology, demographics, economics, diversity, and competition from new educational resources are influencing near-term needs and long-term planning.
Campuses and their design teams are responding with fast, agile, and forward-looking integrated planning efforts that span silos and respond to change with projects that leverage real-time, results-informed data. Smart buildings and data analytics are allowing campuses to identify key metrics and opportunities and leverage information seamlessly, faster, and more accurately.
The SCUP 2019 North Central Regional Conference in Omaha is the forum to have those conversations.
Think fast forward! Look to the future. Share your knowledge. Make new connections. Be a part of the conversation. Join us in Omaha!
Over three days, conference attendees will participate in eye-opening keynotes, featuring new insights, reality checks, and shared wisdom from three nationally-known experts on change and adaptation:
Monday, October 28 @ 6pm: Dr. Mark Milliron, Co-Founder & Chief Learning Officer, Civitas Learning on “Three Revolutions and Why Education Leaders Need a Plan”
Tuesday, October 29 @ 9am: Dr. Elizabeth Paul, President, Capital University, Columbus, Ohio on “Planning with Purpose: Reflecting the Communities We Serve and the Society We Aspire to Build”
Wednesday, October 30 @ 11:00am: Michael Haggans, Visiting Scholar at Center for 21st Century Universities, Georgia Tech University, and author of Campus Matters, on “The Physical Campus in a Digital World”
The program will feature an additional 20+ educational concurrent sessions featuring the region's best of planning and projects. There will also be opportunity to engage in pre-conference tours and workshops as well as fun social and networking events.
