CRP Alumni Panel: Planning for Planning Education

A graphic of a tree with the words

Join faculty, students, and practitioners for a conversation about planning education and practice. A panel of CRP alumni from around Upstate New York will present what they do as planners, how their careers have evolved since graduation, and what they as practitioners wish they had learned in planning school. Their talks will be followed by a discussion on how planning education and our curriculum at Cornell should evolve to meet the needs of the profession today and tomorrow.
