What are they teaching those planning students? The State of Accreditation of Planning Programs
April 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Get an overview of what is being taught in today’s planning schools. Accredited planning schools must meet certain standards. In general, accreditation recognizes educational institutions and professional programs for performance, integrity and quality. For planning programs, the accrediting body is the Planning Accreditation Board. PAB recently updated their requirements to keep pace with the profession and push it forward. PAB accredits 78 master’s and 16 bachelor’s programs at 80 North American universities. This session will cover what PAB requires and how they ensure quality through: Stewardship, Collaboration, Communication, Integrity, and Leadership. In addition to covering curriculum requirements, we will also give an overview of how accredited schools are doing in regard to diversity, faculty quality, and student engagement with the profession.
