Who teaches Planning?
14 January 2013
Planetizen recently looked into the role of the background and academic institutions in training planning faculty throughout the nation. It found that "The top ten schools produced almost half (46%) of all planning faculty (out of approximately 850 total faculty). It is important to note that these are not all planning PhD holders, but these also include degrees from allied disciplines and are regular faculty in accredited planning programs. UC Berkeley is the clear leader followed by Cornell, MIT, and UCLA." The article also looked into years of teaching, year of degree, degree types, and the social network of planning academics to advance the discussion.
