What They’re Saying

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.

Jamie Yates

Executive director of communications and marketing, Gettysburg College

Of all of the higher education marketing conferences I have attended, CUPRAP is by far my favorite. The sessions are informational and relevant and the presenters are the top of their field. Perhaps most importantly, I’ve been able to form meaningful and lasting relationships at the conference. Colleagues (friends!) who have provided me with guidance and support throughout the years.

Gail Towns

Executive Director, Marketing & Communications, Georgian Court University

I (heart) CUPRAP! It’s where I found professional development opportunities, for sure. More than that, I found professionals like me trying to do a lot with a little—and it’s where I learned that it can be done. CUPRAP members are the best: knowledgeable, experienced, willing to share, and above all, willing to support you. They get me—and like me, they love what they do for their institutions and students.
