About Hussein

Hussein Elhagehassan is a soon-to-graduate student of SCARP's accredited Master of Community and Regional Planning program, and during his time here he's accomplished much and meant a lot to his fellow students. 

As a first-year student he became president of SCARP's Planning Student Association, where he not only represented student interests but created a rekindled sense of community, momentum, and possibility among the student base.

His leadership, charisma, and optimism have become a sustained part of the SCARP community even as he passed his torch.

During his second year, Hussein, along with fellow students Rudi Ballard and Stephen Jordan, partnered with UBC-Okanagan in their Planning Studio project, "Climate adaptation, resilience, & biodiversity (CARB) strategy". 

Hussein is now preparing to enter the broader world of professional planning, though as an alum, and for everything he's already done, he'll always be an integral part of the SCARP community.

Congratulations Hussein!
