One hundred and fifty years ago, it was not uncommon for a hardy band of New Englanders to move west, then shortly afterwards decide that their new home was deserving of some sort of higher education facility. Many small liberal arts colleges were started in just this fashion. In the decades following these developments, a number of organizations were developed in order to assist those in higher education administration with the process of planning for future growth and expansion of their respective institutions. The Society for College and University Planning, founded in 1965, is one such organization. From the main website, visitors can read about various conferences and symposia sponsored by the Society and learn about its diverse set of publications. One great resource afforded here is the Knowledge section, which contains lists of higher education news media links, a job postings database, a database of approximately 4000 internet links dealing with higher education, and yet another database that links up to the Planning for Higher Education journal. Users may also elect to receive email updates on a number of related issues, including classroom design, town-gown issues, campus heritage preservation, and student services.
