SCUP Council

The SCUP Council represents the best of SCUP’s community. The Council works hand in hand with our Board to unite higher education leaders, defining and creating the future of our community. Working across regions, committees, academies, task forces, and leadership teams, SCUP Council members are subject matter experts who ensure that SCUP’s offerings align with our community’s needs and the strategic plan. It’s the SCUP Council’s collective work and experiences that lead our membership to solve the toughest challenges together.

The Council’s work supports SCUP’s strategic plan adopted by the board of directors. The Council’s efforts support the following initiative:
