 About the Conference

The Administrators Conference serves as a bi-annual gathering of academic leaders in urban and regional planning departments and programs, to focus on strategic issues in urban planning education, research promotion, and community engagement. The conference features sessions and discussions on central issues in higher education and in our urban planning programs, such as curriculum innovation, internationalization, enrollment trends and strategies, sexual misconduct, equity and diversity, and engagement with professional associations.

The conference also hosts a private networking dinner for Deans and higher level academic administrators and a New Chairs School providing a one-day program specifically for those new to administration.
