Their presentation was based on their work of the Urban Planning Studio supervised by Dr. Joyce Ann Pressley. The second group of students presented work focusing on “Using an Investment Prospectus to Promote Development Initiatives in Opportunity Zones” on the second day of the conference. Their presentation was based on work of the Urban Planning Studio under the supervision of Dr. Jordan Yin.
The students were also exposed to the network of planning discipline through presentation sessions and connected with alumni of the AAMU planning programs at the conference.
