APA Student Representatives Council

2014 SRC Outstanding PSO Award Winner

Congratulations to the University of Michigan's Urban Planning Student Association (UPSA), winner of APA's 2014 Outstanding PSO Award.

UPSA's "Expanded Horizons" event was planned by second-year Master of Urban Planning students as a way of introducing incoming first-year students to a diverse set of topics and opportunities in the field of planning. The goal is to "expand the horizons" of graduate students who want to make a difference in helping cities grow and change in a way that promotes sustainability and social justice. This year's event took place in Toronto where students attended several site visits with companies and organizations doing work related to urban planning.

UPSA was recognized during the APA/AICP Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, April 29, at the 2014 National Planning Conference in Atlanta. UPSA received $1,150 in donations from sponsoring APA Divisions, including the County Planning Division, Housing and Community Development Division, Transportation Planning Division, and Urban Design and Preservation Division.
