The Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) recently announced the launch of the North Central 2023 Regional Conference, scheduled from Oct. 16–18 in St. Louis, Mo., according to a news release. The event’s intended audience is college and university professionals, planners, architects, and designers who will share best practices and lessons learned through keynote sessions and project demonstrations.

“Today’s colleges and universities are facing unprecedented challenges and threats that will shape the future of higher education,” said Ashley Hoolihan, AIA, LEED Green Associate, SCUP North Central 2023 Regional Conference Chair. “This year’s conference will give planning professionals forward-focused tools and ideas for rethinking their campus’ plans, programs, and built environments. We hope to see you in St. Louis this fall.”

SCUP is currently accepting conference presentation proposals from leaders in higher education through May 3, the news release reports. Proposals should be on “topics related to academic planning, change leadership and change management, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), planning processes, preparing for the future, and design.” Proposals can be submitted online, and more detailed instructions and information are available on the SCUP website.

“As a leader in higher education, presenting at SCUP provides a valuable opportunity to share your research, knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned with hundreds of college and university professionals, architects, planners, and designers from a variety of locations and backgrounds,” said Hoolihan. “It’s also a great way to demonstrate your commitment to building a solid future for higher education.”
