Diversity in Planning Program:

Workshop inspires future planning leaders, gives every community a voice

USC Price Professor David Sloane opened the recent Diversity in Planning Workshop by telling attendees that this is an incredible moment in urban planning — with state and local governments, as well as grassroots efforts, taking more ownership over how their own communities are being built. The workshop was the latest in the Price School’s four-year, ongoing effort to increase diversity in Master of Planning degree programs. Sixteen people attended from colleges across the state and country.
