Warner Class Wins APA Prize
Twenty-four students in Professor Mildred Warner's Upstate Fiscal Stress workshop and her Devolution, Privatization, and the New Public Management seminar worked together with a coalition of local government, school, and union groups to explore the nature of state austerity policy and opportunities for creative local response. The resulting projects were awarded the 2015 Outstanding Student Project Award by the Upstate New York Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA). The students presented their work at the Northeast regional APA conference in June 2015, held in Saratoga Springs, New York.
