The SCUP 2007 Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference will consist of a series of focused discussions on reasons and drivers of significant institutional improvement
We will explore the background stories of planning, the contexts in which strategic plans are created, and their outcomes assessed. We have invited stories that tell
the circumstances that led to change, the processes, mechanisms and forces that shaped plans and decisions, and their results—both intended and unintended.
Factors such as demographic shifts, political forces, market forces, economic change, accreditation issues, academic trends, changes in key personnel, and
natural disasters, are among the causes of college and university change.
Presentations will address the subject of institutional change from any of a variety of perspectives—wholesale institutional transformation, to revised
missions to fit market niches, to creation and deletion of programs and schools, to academic expansion, contraction and realignments.
Presentations will engage the audience in discussions of integrated institutional planning and responses within the contexts of the key
forces that brought them about.
A goal of this conference is significant participation in discussions about integrated planning. The presentations will cover the traditional core
areas of planning in higher education: academic, strategic, financial and facility.
