ACSP PhD Workshop

October 10 & 11, 2017  ~  Boulder, Colorado

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning and the PhD Committee of ACSP invites doctoral students of planning working on their dissertation research to attend the 2017 ACSP PhD Workshop. Responding to feedback from last year’s participants, this year the workshop will be a 1.5 day event. It will be hosted in Boulder, CO, during Tuesday afternoon October 10 and all day Wednesday October 11, just prior to the ACSP Annual Conference in Denver starting Thursday, October 12.

The Workshop attracts PhD students from planning programs from around the world to gather and discuss the practical details of creating, producing, distributing and consuming planning knowledge among scholars. Workshop participants will learn to conceive, design, and present PhD-quality research to multiple audiences, including, most centrally, their peers. Students will advise one another as scholars pursuing unique research paths within a community of shared inquiry. The faculty work jointly as teachers, advisors, and coaches.

JPER Writing Workshop for Early Career Planning Scholars

July 17-19, 2017  ~  Rutgers University

The editors of the Journal of Planning Education and Research (JPER) host the annual JPER Writing Workshop for New Scholars, this year on July 17-19, 2017, at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ. Our goal is to improve the quality of written scholarship among new faculty of planning and related academic programs. The workshop is intended for recent Ph.D. recipients (or candidates graduating in Spring 2017) in urban planning, urban studies, and closely related fields. Untenured assistant professors also are eligible to participate.

The program will include sessions on the writing and publication process, with intensive small-group work on participants' own manuscripts. Selected participants are required to submit an article-length paper (about 30 double-spaced pages) by mid-April. The paper will go through a mock peer review process by three referees. These reviews and additional feedback from faculty and fellow participants will be the basis for small-group discussions during the workshop.

There is no registration fee for participants, but attendees are responsible for their own travel. Up to 20 applicants will be selected.

 

ACSP Junior Faculty Workshop for Faculty of Color 2017

June 22-24, 2017  ~  Harvard University

The ACSP Committee on Diversity, in collaboration with the ACSP Planners of Color Interest Group organizes the Junior Faculty of Color workshop every other year [odd numbered years]. If you will be entering your second or third year of the tenure track during this year, this workshop is for you! The workshop aims to provide early-career, tenure-track faculty with the skills and knowledge to flourish in the planning professoriate. Workshops are hosted by an ACSP member planning program, and the event provides close interaction with senior faculty from various types of ACSP institutions. The workshops focus on three areas: developing your initial research and publishing agenda, making service and teaching effective, obtaining grants, and planning a long-term career trajectory that will make an impact.

 

Pre-Doctoral Workshop for Underrepresented Students of Color

Dates and Location TBD

Our world is changing, and urban planning can lead the way. In an increasingly diverse and globalized world, urban planners work to create communities that are economically thriving, socially just, and environmentally sustainable. A doctoral degree in planning can prepare you to link new knowledge to issues that affect communities and policy-making worldwide.

To introduce planning doctoral study to selected outstanding students, one of our member schools with the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning, will host a bi-annual [in even numbered years] workshop to prepare students to apply to and succeed in doctoral programs. Students from groups that are under-represented on planning faculties are particularly encouraged to apply. Groups that are under-represented on planning faculties include: African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders. Registration and instructional materials will be provided at no cost, lodging and meals will also be provided at no cost, and travel stipends are available for some students.

Mission

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning promotes education, research, service and outreach in the United States and throughout the world by seeking to:

  • recognize diverse needs and interests in planning;
  • improve and enhance the accreditation process, and;
  • strengthen the role of planning education in colleges and universities through publications, conferences, and community engagement;
  • extend planning beyond the classroom into the world of practice.
