Pacific Regional Conference 2006

Planning Cultures of Wellness:
Creating Healthy
Campus Communities

March 5–7, 2006
Westin Long Beach
Long Beach, CA (USA)

Higher education institutions—public or private, large or small, comprehensive or specialized—face Long Beach shorelinecontinuing challenges to build and sustain excellence in programs, services, and facilities. The complex higher education system includes diverse and ever-changing interests and constituencies both internal and external. This creates strategic opportunities for integrated planning processes that are adaptive, fluid, and nimble in balancing core values while responding to emerging perspectives.

At the core, every campus wants to create healthy learning environments where teaching, research, and public service flourish within the boundaries of their specific mission. This requires a culture of wellness for all aspects of planning—academic, facilities, financial, human resources, student services, and technology. This will ensure a campus environment that fosters success in the pursuit of excellence.

In this context, the SCUP 2006 Pacific Region Conference is focused on understanding three interrelated planning challenges facing institutions today:

  1. How do the principles of wellness relate to planning in higher education institutions?
  2. How are higher education institutions successfully integrating planning efforts in a quest for excellence?
  3. Is there a paradigm for motivating diverse constituents to seek a healthy campus community across all programs, services, and facilities?
