This course provides professional planners with a thorough and thoughtful discussion of ethical concerns likely to face many planners in their careers. The work of planning for communities is rooted in values, often unexpressed, about the role of government in working for a better future. So planners should, from time to time, examine their own values and those of the American Institute of Certified Planners as they go about their work in the public or private sectors.
