A Closer Look at Marc Doussard, JPER Top Reviewer Award Winner (Non- Editorial Board Member)

Each year, the Journal of Planning Education and Research (JPER) selects two of the best reviewers from among the JPER editorial board members and two non-editorial board members. The editors look at the number of reviews submitted within the past year, combined with the timeliness and quality of the reviews.

The winners of the 2017 Top Reviewer Award for Non-Editorial Board Members are Marc Doussard, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Thomas Sanchez, Virginia Tech. This award was presented in October of 2018, at the ACSP Annual Conference.

Here's "A Closer Look" at award winner Marc Doussard.

Doussard is associate professor of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research focuses on questions of equity within the linked fields of community, urban economic and regional development. He is author of Degraded Work (University of Minnesota Press, 2013), winner of the 2015 Paul Davidoff Award from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning, and a co-author of Fast Food, Poverty Wages: The Public Cost of Low Wage Jobs in the Fast Food Industry (UC Berkeley Labor Center, 2014).

Professor Doussard has worked in community and economic development as a scholar, practitioner and organizers since 1999. He and his co-authors are currently at work on books about urban social movements and the maker movement.



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.
