Special Interest Groups

There are currently three designated special interest groups of the ACSP. Faculty and student members of the ACSP can join these groups and engage with like-minded colleagues within the group. Click the links below to visit each interest group's homepage.

Faculty Women's Interest Group (FWIG)
FWIG seeks to encourage and support women faculty and graduate students in urban and regional planning as well as those conducting research and outreach on planning issues critical to women.

Planners of Color Interest Group (POCIG)
The mission of the POCIG is to advance the interests and concerns of people and communities of color within the planning academia and the profession.

Global Planning Educator's Interest Group (GPEIG)
GPEIG’s mission is to enable planning educators and students to collaboratively share global perspectives in planning education and research.


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.
