CRP Professional Planning Colloquium

The Professional Planning Colloquium is a forum for visiting practitioners working on topics related to city and regional planning to share their work experience and address problems and opportunities they face in the practice of planning.

The colloquium takes place during the fall semester on Friday from 12:20 pm to 2:00 pm in the Kaufmann Auditorium in Goldwin Smith Hall. The formal session is often followed by an optional informal discussion session held in West Sibley Hall, Room 208, from 2:15 pm to 3:30 pm. Students may enroll in the colloquium for class credit.
