Transportation Technology Dean Certified as College Planner


Colin W. WilliamsonThe dean of Pennsylvania College of Technology’s School of Transportation Technology is among the higher-education professionals recently certified by the Society for College and University Planning.

Colin W. Williamson joins about 100 colleagues nationwide and is one of very few in Pennsylvania who have completed the three-level SCUP Planning Institute. The institute provides lectures, group exercises and case studies to expose its participants to best practices in higher-education planning and to build knowledge of various academic, financial and facilities-related issues across their respective campuses.

“The training I received will help in strategic planning and gave me insight to the integration of budgeting and assessment to the planning cycle,” Williamson said. “I was introduced to both the theory and practical problems of collegewide planning and assessing an institution’s effectiveness. The background will help with allocation decisions and planning future directions for programs in transportation technology.”

The Society for College and University Planning is an international network of nearly 5,000 higher-education professionals who use planning to identify and reach institutional goals. Visit online for more information.
