Each summer, Dr. Ming Zhang coordinates and brings a team of UT students to China to participate in an international planning workshop with Chinese partner universities. Graduate CRP students who participated in the 2017 & 2018 workshops will discuss their experiences, the team projects they worked on, and what it was like to work as US-trained planners in an international context.
Speakers: Louis Alcorn, Anahi Bendeck, Robert Davila, Ziqi Liu, Olivia Posner, Paulina Urbanowicz
These CRP students (and one PhD candidate) hail from all over the US and the world. Their interests in planning include transportation, real estate, and land use. Their dynamic backgrounds in transportation planning, the federal government, economic development, academia, and engineering give them unique insights into broad planning perspectives.
