I’m a member of the newly formed student organization the “Urban Issues Collective.” Below is information about the first event we’re sponsoring. If you are interested in urban issues – whether New Urbanism, architecture, transportation, urban politics, etc – and would like to join the organization, come to the event or email one of the addresses below to get on the email list.


The Urban Issues Collaborative is holding an informational forum for undergraduates on pathways in urban planning.
