Avalone Serves as “Expert on Hand” at Society for College and University Planning Annual Conference 


Valarie Avalone, director of planning, was asked to serve as an “Expert on Hand” in a new experimental session at SCUP’s 48th annual, international conference in San Diego. An informal forum - SCUP GeniusWorks! – was conceived as an opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues and/or problems on the topic of strategic planning.  This well-attended session was such a success that Avalone has already been asked back for next year. Other experts were Robert Brodnick, vice president for strategy & innovation, Strategic Initiatives, Inc. and Robert C. Dickeson, president emeritus, University of Northern Colorado.

Avalone was also recognized at the conference as she completed her service on SCUP’s Board of Directors, having served as an at-large director with community college expertise for the past three years.
