Thank you for your interest in our Summer Predoctoral Workshop for Students of Color. Presently, the Price School does not have a workshop planned for future summers. However, our school continues to engage in promoting diversity under its Initiative on Diversity, Social Justice, and Inclusion and with campus partners who are committed to diversity and inclusion, including The Graduate School.
The Summer Predoctoral Workshop for Students of Color is now under the stewardship of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning. Every year, ACSP partners with different academic institutions to produce the diversity workshop. For more information, please visit their website at http://www.acsp.org/
Below is an example of our past workshop that was held in 2016. If you are interested in our PhD programs, please visit our PhD website for more information: https://priceschool.usc.edu/programs/phd/
Our world is changing, and public policy and urban planning can lead the way. In an increasingly diverse and globalized world, planners and policy makers work to create communities that are economically thriving, socially just, and environmentally sustainable. A doctoral degree can prepare you to link new knowledge to issues that affect communities and policy-making worldwide.
