URP Advisory Council

The UF Urban And Regional Planning Department Advisory Council comprises alumni and practitioners dedicated to the advancement of the URP program. The Advisory Council has identified three focus areas to guide work with the Department: Development (Fundraising); Professional Development (including the Future of Planning), and; Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. Work in each of these areas is progressing through monthly committee meetings and a number of exciting initiatives.
