The Student Planning Association (SPA)is a student-run, faculty-supported organization within the Department of Urban and Regional Planning (URP). All students in the URP program, and any student interested in planning, are eligible members and are welcome to become involved throughout their studies. Students in URP are offered a variety of professional development opportunities and events organized by SPA each semester. SPA also serves as a voice for the URP cohort by representing all students, and by providing a place where students can bring ideas, concerns, and requests.
