Carolina Graduate Student Organizations Win American Planning Association Award

Planners’ Forum and Carolina Planning Journal, two student-led organizations in the Department of City and Regional Planning at The University of North Carolina, were recently named joint recipients of the American Planning Association (APA) Outstanding Planning Student Organization Award for 2016.

The APA Student Representatives Council (SRC) Executive Committee designed this awards program to, as stated on the APA website: promote students’ volunteer involvement in their student organization, communities, and state chapters; recognize the outstanding efforts of these student groups; identify best practices in student organizations; and strengthen the ties between student organizations and the American Planning Association.

Carolina’s organizations were granted this award based on their efforts this year to organize a series of initiatives to create a meaningful experience for students. One recipient, the Carolina Planning Journal, published a print volume in May 2015 around the theme of “Planning for the New Economy.” This blog, which publishes twice per week and has attracted a wide readership of almost 2,000 unique visitors in 2016 alone, also featured prominently in the award.
