“By far the greatest and most admirable form of wisdom is that needed to plan and beautify cities and human communities.” ― Socrates

With a planning degree, a world of opportunity awaits you! From transportation planning, to open spaces, to housing and social justice, there is no limit to the potential impact of a planner on our communities and world.

ACSP regularly features the Planner Profile series in order to highlight the outstanding faculty at our member schools, as well as the many different paths one might take with a planning degree. We feature faculty, current students, and graduates of our member school programs to learn more about the paths that brought them to where they are today, as well as future plans and goals.

Planner profiles continue to be one of the most popular series on our website and social media. These profiles provide excellent exposure to our members, as well as their universities and programs.

We invite you to visit the Planner Profile page and read about your planning colleagues … what you learn may surprise you! Be sure to peruse the planning archives and don’t forget to nominate someone that you think would make an excellent candidate for our series!

ACSP ... connecting educators, researchers and students.
