Best Practices

Organization of Cornell Planners, Cornell University
Social Justice and Unincorporated Communities: A Symposium
Project: The members of OCP saw an innovative opportunity to catalyze discussion in the planning community about municipal exclusion. They brought together a community organizer, a legal researcher, and an associate at an advocacy think tank for a one-day symposium that exposed students to an often overlooked, but emerging, planning issue.

Community Outreach

Graduate Planning Student Association, University at Buffalo
Buffalo Urban Planners (BuffaloUP)
Project: The association collaborated with a local NGO to teach local middle school students the fundamentals of community planning using the neighborhood surrounding schools as a living laboratory. Students learn about planning and design in the context of their own neighborhood and are engaged to discuss the implications of design and the role of their community.
