SCUP 2013 Southern Regional Conference

Atlanta, GA

Nothing is permanent except change; the continuous evolution of higher education is its only constant. The speed of this evolution is influenced by many drivers, but as we attempt to predict what the future of higher education might look like, it is evident that changes are accelerating at an unprecedented pace.
From academics to campus life, from fiscal to the environmental, the future is influenced in part by changes in expectations, technologies, pedagogies, and demographics. Glimpses of the future of higher education are starting to influence the way we think of and plan for our institutions now. Student, parent, legislative, and market expectations are advancing performance-based, results-oriented decisions in every aspect of education. Technologies are driving changes in the way education is purchased, accessed, and delivered.
Education and scholarship are no longer bound by location, time, or cost. How do planners integrate academics, financial, and physical parameters and interest when they are changing so quickly? What makes the campus of the future relevant in the age of online classes? What environmental and fiscal changes have to be made to accommodate changing models of learning?
Campus planners must answer these questions while providing a physical environment that advances their institution's mission and promotes student learning. To do so requires a planning process that integrates all aspects of campus planning--physical, budgetary, academic, and high-level strategic planning—and requires planners to know the latest best practices and upcoming trends in all areas of higher education. At this conference, planners will acquire skills that allow them to integrate the latest practices in higher education planning, discuss unique solutions to the latest higher education challenges, and connect with other leaders in higher education.
