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.
Since joining CUPRAP, I have gained a great deal of knowledge and insight into the fields of marketing and communication for higher education from a network of professionals who face the same opportunities and challenges day after day. The colleagues I have met through CUPRAP – many of whom have become friends – have been incredibly generous in sharing their experiences and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. The fall workshop and spring conference, which feature all the hottest and most timely topics in higher education communication and provide valuable networking opportunities, are two highlights of my year. The CUPRAP community is like no other, and it provides a valuable experience for higher education communicators at every stage of their careers.
