A look back at...


FLiP 2018 

plan'ning noun

The activity or profession of determining the future physical arrangement or condition of a community. Planning, also called urban planning or city and regional planning, is a dynamic profession that works to improve the welfare of people and their communities by creating more convenient, equitable, healthful, efficient, and attractive places for present and future generations. Planning helps communities envision their future and find the right balance of new development, essential services, environmental protection, and innovative change.

Think planning is a career in which you might be interested? Then FLiP 2018 is for you!

Designed as an opportunity for high school students to explore urban planning as a potential career, FLiP offers a broad exposure to planning from public and private sector perspectives across many fields. In its second year, the annual FLiP program expanded from nine to eighteen students and from a two-day to a three-day intensive program. This year we're excited to announce FLiP will accept 21 students for a four-day program!
