UBC and the School of Community and Regional Planning gather and teach on the traditional ancestral and unceded territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ speaking xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people.
This acknowledgement is only the beginning of our due diligence: our commitment is shown not in our affirmations but our actions.
The SCARP Student Life-Cycle
Approach planning in your vision. Attain the knowledge, skills, and applied experiences to be the facilitators and leaders of positive change. Build your network.
As a SCARP student, you already have resources available to help you through your program and begin your journey as a planner.
SCARP will continue to benefit you throughout your journey as a planner, with resources, networking, and a lot more. You have a network of peers, too. (photo credit: Mulugeta Ayene, for WLE-CGIAR)
