AMERICAN PLANNING STUDENT ASSOCIATION 2018 - 2019
The American Planning Student Association (APSA) is a non-profit, student-driven organization within the Urban and Regional Planning Department in the College of Environmental Design of Cal Poly Pomona. The APSA organization was designed to be a community of students and faculty dedicated to providing educational, professional, and social development for planners at Cal Poly Pomona. APSA memberships are intended to serve any student within Cal Poly Pomona who is interested in the study of urban planning.
APSA is the primary resource for students within the Urban Regional Planning Program who want to find connections and build relationships with members of the planning profession. Serving as the primary voice for the student body, APSA functions as a means to get students involved in their education, through a combination of various planning related events, on and off campus. The key tenants driving APSA are based upon the student experience, such as providing opportunities to network, building important work skills, gaining exposure to the profession, and actively improving the Urban and Regional Planning Program. In a broader context, APSA is actively affiliated with other organizations from within Cal Poly Pomona and across Southern California, promoting an even larger community of learning, so that we may be better prepared to address the societal issues of the future.
