Each year the UDP Professional’s Council hosts a poster contest for the graduating Master of Urban Planning Students. It’s an opportunity for students to share their thesis topics in poster form with the Professional Council as well as fellow students and faculty.
Judges review the posters and choose the top posters based on a number of different criteria. There is also a People’s Choice Award. All the posters are currently hanging on the boards on the 4th floor of Gould and some of them are posted below the slideshow on this page.
