As described in introducing the Serendipitous Academic, I joined the School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) in 1982 as an Assistant Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor in 1987 and Professor in 1992. From 1999 to 2006 I served as the Director of the School. Today, I continue as a Professor in the School. Since returning from Administrative Leave following the Directorship in 2008, I have focused on teaching and supervising graduate students; research relating to my courses and graduate students interests; strategic planning for developing the School; and working with the Planning Institute of British Columbia and the Canadian Institute of Planners on issues relating to planning education. On this page I focus on ideas relating to strategic planning and the future development of SCARP. Ideas relating specifically to the other topics are explored under their own pages, as listed in the right hand column.
More to come as time permits
