What They’re Saying

Sean Ramsden

Editor, The Lawrenceville School

CUPRAP is such a robust, forward-thinking professional development organization, but through it, I have also met so many smart, creative, and talented people who have also become friends. The people in CUPRAP are at the center of what makes it great – fellow communicators who understand your pain points, have done many of the things you are looking to do, and want to share their experiences and solutions. When you think of a professional network, this is what you want it to be.

Tracy Jackson

Director of Marketing, Duquesne University

From its members-only LISTSERV access to the annual spring professional development conference, CUPRAP brings together our higher education colleagues from across the state allowing us to share industry ideas, challenges, and triumphs.

Carina Sitkus

Director, University Communications, Lehigh University

Some professional networks can feel large and anonymous. When I have a challenge or a question, my CUPRAP colleagues are always my first go-tos. The CUPRAP network is personal and accessible and made up of communications and higher education professionals with high levels of expertise who are always willing to exchange ideas and solutions. I also highly recommend their professional development, conference, and networking programs.
