SCARP’s alumni network is a powerful benefit of your UBC education.  

Planning is defined by the partnerships you forge and the networks you keep. Throughout your professional life you won’t just fondly remember your time at SCARP: you’ll have a community hub of peer experts and partners, and the resources you’ll always find here.  

SCARP’s graduates represent a vital global network of alumni. Many have remained in British Columbia and are well connected to local planning issues and debates, while others have enriched SCARP’s extended community with a myriad of experience from the contexts across the world in which they work and live.
