The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP) will hold its Annual Conference from November 3–5, 2022, in Toronto, Ontario. After being fully virtual last year, the conference will return to an in-person format and offer more than 250 academic sessions, poster receptions, networking events, and book exhibits in the three-day span.

The focal theme of this year's conference is (Re) Shaping the Inclusive City: Engaging Indigenous and Immigrant Voices, Histories, and Lived Experiences. Historically, many individuals and groups feel left out of community conversations about space and place and, in addition, both indigenous communities and new immigrant communities fear marginalization and erasure when professional planners develop policies, projects, programs, and processes that ignore equity concerns. The ACSP Annual Conference will highlight papers and sessions that engage with this focal theme and address the histories and geographies of marginalization and inclusion.

The ACSP Alumni reception will be held on Thursday, November 3 in the York Meeting Room at the Hilton Toronto. It will include Cornell University, the University of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Rutgers University, Columbia University, and New York University.

For the second year, CRP Associate Professor Jennifer Minner is serving as the Conference Chair for the ACSP (term 2021–2023). Cornell faculty, students, and alumni will be well represented across the conference's various functions, including roundtable discussions and paper presentations.
