Inclusion (LGBTQIA + Allies)
The acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Allies.

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.

The ACSP Student Network is the resource for students in planning and related fields.

  • 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.
